Great video. I've never listened to mountain music before, but I can share in the feeling it gave you in this moment.

BTW, my mother hates it when I text and drive, what would yours be saying about you videotaping and driving...:)

That has GOT to be the best road I've ever seen! How fortunate to be able to drive it daily!

Jenna, another great video. Just caught back up on your blog. Incredible! I love following your journey with all its rewards, successes, and new found knowledge. It's like finding a friend to share the learning curve with and grow together! :) (Love Gibson's enthusiasm on the ride too!)

Awesome, Jenna!
Such spectacular, country scenery - isn't life grand to live in such a place?
Reminds me of where we live in Prince Edward Island, except we have no hills or mountains, but the fields and corn and the country roads, oh yeah!

I love that Crooked Still CD and play it all the time! What a lovely road home, around my house there is soooo much traffic you really have to do some planning to hit the country roads.

I was looking a head with a hand on the wheel, the other hand was working the camera. Thus the weird focus on the air freshener...

Ash, I love AK too!

You might want to rethink allowing Gibson to be loose in the front seat and to be hanging out the window. I know it is great to have your buddy up front but they are totally vulnerable in the event of a hard brake or swerve. Many a dog has fallen out of a car window and I know from experience how hard they hit the dash when you have to brake abruptly. I know you would be devastated if some horrible fate befell Gibson.

dog lady, he's leashed and secured. And there is no other seat besides the front seat in a small cab pickup.

That looks very much like my road home. It's amazing how much New York and Texas can look the same. My road is admittedly flatter, though. :)

Very nice drive "home" for you, Jenna. It almost looks like my drive with Lookout Mt. to the right. I'd like to see the drive up to the house next time. My dog Bubba hangs out the window like that too. He loves it. I used to have a dog that would bite at all the cars and trucks going by. I miss that dog. Beautiful views.

Super! I couldn't see that he was secured in the video. Should have known you had that base covered.

I was worried about Gibson, too....we all should have known better.

That view looks like the drive to my camper in the Blue Ridge Mountains of VA! We just came back on Wed. and I miss it already. Lucky you to live there. Loved the music, too.

Road "home". How lucky you are to have that as your road to drive every day! I can tell Gibson is grateful for it and filled with happiness too!

Gibby!!! He's just such a handsome one. Looks like a wonderful drive, Jen. :)

Love the doggy "nose messages," from Gibson, on his side of the windshield. Some day I hope to be able to read all "nose messages"accurately....

That was a really nice ride. Thanks for taking us along!

1. I love Gibson's head out the window. Dogs crack me up. I have a weimaraner and his ears just go a-flappin' when we drive.

2. Like the music :)

3. Are those Gib nose prints I saw on the windshield?! Too cute.

4. I live on a country road too-- a little more populated but long enough to destress on my drive home from work.

Thanks for sharing

Don't have a dog. Don't have a truck.
Don't have a country home.
Shucks.

That was a nice interlude.

I couldn't help but wonder how it will be to navigate that beautiful country road come winter. The scenery should be spectacular with new fallen snow. I do hope your town does a good job plowing.

P.S. Would love to see the same drive at the peak of autumn color.

Jenna - I always love your choice of music! As a full time hip-neck and mama of four, I don't get out much...I would love it if you could post your seminal mountain play-list - songs to live, laugh, love, work, and cry by. Cheers.
