Then there is the somewhat slower way along single lane 'highways', through rural areas, farms, up scenic roads, and through small towns. It takes a bit longer, but we take it when we have the time.
Each has the same start and destination - but it is the way in which we take the trip that makes all the difference.
And that is how and why I play RPG's.
