When we tell people we are going on the Great Race one of the first comments we hear is, “Oh you must see beautiful countryside!” I remember our Rookie year we were driving on a curvy road with frequent speed changes. As the driver my focus was keeping the car on the road, looking ahead for changes in terrain, looking out for signs, and watching the speedometer.
After a very long stretch we finally came to a coffee break. When we got out of the car one of the Racers came up and said, “Wasn’t that the most beautiful lake you have ever seen?” I looked at Pat and said, “What lake?”
I had been so focused on the road and the speedometer I did not even see the huge lake that we had driven around. Since then we have heard we missed beautiful fields of sunflowers and famous “roadside attractions”. So yes, we do go through beautiful countryside; but we really don’t get to enjoy the scenery.
