Well Marcy.....I am a full blown HOME-Body, but even if I have activities on Holidays with family & friends, I haven't far to travel. Further, in my little corner of the world, "traffic" as most people know it, is not an issue here.
Believe it or not, I have taken note a time or two when going from my home to my son's house 12 miles away, depending of course on the time of day, I "might" encounter 50 other vehicles, maximum!
However, traveling out side of the area usually means driving I-90 (Thruway) and I am not fond of the busyness, craziness and MPH on a major thoroughfare!! Cars driving so fast, speeding by, weaving in & out of traffic.....it all causes me anxiety. So, yes, I suppose that says I'm afraid to "get out on the highway!" LOL
Of course it's always busier during Holidays, so honestly....I like to plan to stay home and invite a few people over.
By the way....You have a wonderful Memorial Day week-end, Marcy!
