Hey, I was just wondering... did any one here ever just one day decided they'd leave it all behind and just start like and extended road trip, some voyage to nowhere (alias drifting) with just some elementals (e.g. acoustic guitar, toothbrush :p) and just roam the world, traveling from place to place just for the fun and adventure of it?

I reckon with a few mates and such it could be one hell of a ride, right?
Bad idea? 'Cause if it is, someone should stop me :p

A guitar, a motorcycle and a ol' fashioned busking hat. That's the way to go.

I thought this was going to be about the car manuever.

Sounds good, but you need lots of money

its one of those things you dream of but never end up doing simply cause of the day in and day out lifestyle everyone has...

Yeah, but to do that you'll probably need to quit your job, your education, your girlfriend (unless you take her with you) and quit your old life for a while.

If I had a crap load of money, I would call up my lead guitarist say "Grab your acoustic we're going on a road trip to nowhere!" then do it.

But I don't and I'm not even old enough to drive yet.


Go figure.

It's funny how seemingly a lot of people have always thought or dreamed about it, but haven't done anything yet. I've asked a million other people, most of them dreamed about something like that, but they've never actually done it.
I suppose the image sometimes is a bit over-romanticized for some people...
And a lot of people think ''I've got this life here now, I'll do it when I'm retired''
But I think it can be such an enlightening adventure and can enrich your youth that I don't want to postpone it until then...

Everything combined and seeing as we're a party of 6 all traveling in the same car, we each pay gas for it, also our car is a hybrid, so the total budget strain for a car isn't that much more. It's all the stuff you can't foresee that's bothering me when it comes to budget. but hey, that's why it's called an adventure...right?

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

I would love to do it someday but there is one problem. MONEY! How are you going to go from place to place without cash for food. You would eventually have to find odd jobs to do on the way (which does not sound fun to me). I still hope to do it at some point in my life.

Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies"

EDIT: Jackal your like the town elder of UG. Someone thinks of something and your all "Pshh been there done that..."

Wow. I think they do, it may have just gone on recently I think. They just had a Blues/Jazz Fest lately too. You should come back and play again! We have quite a few concert series things to choose from.

Yeah after grade twelve I'm ****ing outta BC, going around Canada and maybe the US. I think it's funny that so many people all want to do it but never get around to doing it. I just say, who cares about job, do it when you're young before going to post-secondary. Everyone should just see the world, you can't stay in the same place all your life. If traveling isn't high on your priority list, you'll never get it done ever, you'll just keep putting it off until you die. For me, it's also gonna be part of finding myself. And if you go to different places you'll make friends all over the place. And when I'm good and ready, off to uni. It's on the way from BC too, I gotta get to Montreal somehow y'know.
