16 Stages Of Going On A Road Trip With Your Best Friend

1. Being super excited about the next seven hours.

The tank is full, spirits are high, and you two have soooo much to talk about. This road trip couldn’t have happened at a better time. IT’S GOING TO BE SO MUCH FUN!

2. Singing-a-long at the top of your lungs.

You hook up your phone to the stereo and show off the playlist you made specifically for this trip. The two of you quickly erupt into singing. Your suuuuuugarrrr. Yes Pleeeeaaaaase. Won’t you come and put it down on me.

3. Starting the song over.

You realize you didn’t sound half bad on that! The two of you practice it again, splitting up the lyrics and working on harmonies. By the time you reach your destination, you’re going to be a bona fide Maroon 5 cover band.

4. Gossiping about everyone you can think of.

“Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.” Yeah, yeah, yeah, we get it Ms. Roosevelt. But did you hear that Tim and Pamela broke up because she’s flirting with her Pilates instructor?

5. Baring your souls and sharing all your hopes and dreams.

Why am I still working for them? I don’t even want to work in advertising! But if I quit, then what am I going to do with my life? Maybe I should travel! OMG we should backpack through Europe together!

6. Planning a future trip to Europe.

The two of you obviously travel well together, so why not? Road Trip 2.0 : Eurail.

7. Singing some more.

These new plans for Europe have gotten the two of you really excited and you can’t contain it! In the words of The Pointer Sisters, “I’m so excited! And I just can’t hide it!”

8. Sitting in silence.

It’s not uncomfortable in any form. You’re just completely at ease simply enjoying each other’s presence.

9. Talking in funny voices or accents.

You’ve been in the car long enough that you’re starting to go a little crazy. All conversations now occur between Borat and Bob Dylan.

10. Making small talk about your surroundings.

You’ve been in the car for so long that the tumbleweeds are starting to be interesting. Hey look! That one totally looks like Conan O’Brien!

11. Annoying each other.

Only one of you actually found that Conan O’Brien joke funny. You laughed along so they didn’t feel bad about their bad joke, but you can only take so many jokes about tumbleweeds and famous talk show hosts. That last one definitely didn’t look like Jimmy Fallon, so maybe it’s time to get some new material! Huh? Maybe?? Please!!

12. Sitting in silence.

This isn’t the silence that comes from soaking up the other person’s presence. This is the silence that means “If I have to hear one more pun, I’m gonna toss you from this vehicle!”

13. Stopping for food.

You finally eat and realize that you weren’t really mad at each other, just starving.

14. Singing again!

Your friendship is rekindled! You’ve gotten your second wind! Resume Maroon 5 rehearsals!

15. Humming instead of singing.

You’ve switched to humming and bobbing your head because your voices are too tired to maintain Adam Levine’s falsetto. Just as fun, but slightly less loud.

16. Stopping for selfies.

You pass by a beautiful viewpoint, so obviously that means pulling over and taking a bff selfie. You post it to Instagram so that everyone knows that the two of you are winning at the best-friends-on-a-road-trip game. TC mark

    Me and a friend of mine used to go on random road trips back in the day. We had this map and we would try to go to the ends of roads and see if they kept going. We crossed off a lot of that map.
