    Cl7PCV2XEAEpjCZ Summer is the time when we yearn to get away. And there are no two words that invoke a grander feeling of freedom then: "road trip." For SixContest #79, we asked for your stories about traveling the open road. From family trips (“Everywhere we traveled, Dad knew someone.” –CJProArtz) to life-changing solo journeys (“Different person returned after 4,000 miles.” –ChewyD2), your tales remind us that every pit stop provides an opportunity for adventure. If you're looking to avoid a case of FOMO this summer (“Cherries for sale; we never stopped.” –GrannyGreg) — pack the essentials, grab the keys and hit the road, Jack!
