Roadtrip to Montana with Suzanne. In the passenger seat. 2011.

I have only done this trip with friends three times, most recently with Suzanne. She was going to Yellowstone National Park to meet her best friend and offered to chauffeur me back and forth so I could take pictures through the window. She was to drop me off in Butte, then pick me up in Missoula after I roamed around a bit and saw my relatives. I expected to have a lovely trip with Suzanne listening to music and Agatha Christie mysteries and taking pictures.

Silence is a natural part of the drive. That is why you have music and books to listen to – so everyone can relax and just enjoy the drive. But no silence for Suzanne and I. We talked the entire way there and the entire way back. They were the probably the longest and among the most enjoyable conversations I have ever had.

If you ever get the chance to take a road trip with Suzanne I highly recommend you do. Here is a picture of our beautiful drive:
