She needs to explore their new city before they move, scope out housing and make connections for work.
"I could go with you?" I suggest.
"Oh. Oh! That would be great!"
The details work out perfectly. Our avail abilities match. I find an unusually cheap plane ticket. Work slows.
I prepare for a road trip. My first roadtrip. Then I fly out to meet her, and we begin the drive to her new city.
It turns out that I am okay driving with cruise control. With the cruise on, I can focus in staying in my lane and not keeping the vehicle at the proper speed as we go through mountain passes and plains.
Driving, that thing I hate doing, becomes okay.
Driving becomes a way to serve my friend, a way to see the beautiful country, a way to explore new possibilities, meet new friends.
I'll drive, if I can cruise.
