So I’ve always loved driving. Like, LOVE driving. I love to drive my little sports car up the canyons near home and I love being able to row through my manual gearbox as I fly up the onramp to the highway. This has always helped me to focus on driving, as the excitement of driving gives me the novelty necessary to focus better. I used to get speeding tickets, but I haven’t had one in many years now since I’m super cautious now due to past experiences and not wanting expensive insurance haha.
However lately, I’ve been tempted to get a truck or SUV so I can do some backcountry camping, another passion of mine. The problem is, my sports car can’t reach many places I want to go, and I feel like a truck or suv won’t be as engaging to drive and will rob me of that attention on the road, and may even cause me to impulsively buy another sports car after haha.
Has anybody else encountered something similar? I can only own one car right now. What would be a good compromise to have something fun to drive to engage my mind, while also allowing me the freedom to go camp in remote places?
