For example, I have learned that I'm not always very good at matching up the maze of intricate streets in front of me with the image appearing on my GPS. Had to backtrack a couple of times. I've also learned not to get into heavy traffic with Mom, although technically I already knew that. But it was confirmed.
You also learn things about the places you're driving through. I learned that I-70 in Missouri and Kansas passes by a wealth of historical sites. I discovered a part of Denver to not spend the night in. And I found out that Topeka, Kansas has an excellent Barnes and Noble.
I also learned, thanks to Mom's coffee habit, that Starbucks has a series of 'You Are Here' mugs - different designs for different states and major cities. They're kind of cool, and big enough to use for soup! You can only buy them at the location - very clever.

There's nothing like a road trip. :)
