Where do you guys drive to when you go on late night cruises with the window down?

Lately I've just been driving 60+ miles straight on the interstate until I start wasting too much gas then turn around, driving 120 miles altogether. I just like the freedom I feel when I do it, but looking for places to drive to when I do this stuff. Where do you guys usually go?
>>
look on google maps for twisty roads without too many intersections
>>
usually to some bar or a restaurant that work all night, do circles around local lake or go to the bridge over one river which is a suicide spot (sadly never met anyone there)

My car isn't very fast but I like pushing it on this little stretch of road late at night. It's close enough to my school so I just pass by before going home or if I'm feeling stressed out or something
The green part doesn't have many as many lights either and with the beach right next to you it's pretty cool driving with the window down
there's also a little spot under the bridge at the bottom where cars can park and you can walk around by the water, also very chill at night

but yeah by the beach is the best

Sometimes, as far as I can go, other times I just drive around the city trying to find places I haven't been to.

I know a few mountain passes and dirt roads, it makes for good road trips in the middle of the night. I usually do it when I feel really down. I've been through a pretty rough relationship with a girl lately and I've been thinking of leaving for a weekend on the road.

Depends on how I feel.

It might be just from santa Rosa CA op over Calistoga Road, and back in Mark West Springs. Just enough to bend it around a few turns.

If I'm feeling that feel- it might be: Up Calistoga Road over to Calistoga, then Hwy 128 all the way to Hwy 101, then up Hwy 101 to Clover dale, then out 128 (again) to the Pacific Ocean at Mendocino, and ultimately Ft. Bragg. That' a haul, I had a 1980 RX-7 and it was awesome to carve up 128 between Cloverdale and Boonville.

Every evening at the nearest railyard, there's a CSX intermodal train that departs around the same time. For the past few years I've gone there at least once a week to run with it, because there's a stretch of about 30 miles where the road runs very close to the tracks. Some segments they get split for a bit but then there's long stretches in which I can just drive alongside the locomotives up front and listen to the sounds of those massive 4,400 horsepower diesel engines. I enjoy it every single time and never feel like I'm wasting time or even gas.

Doing loops is OK, but sometimes it attracts cops. I had one follow me for a good 10 minutes until I pulled into a Tim Hortons. He noticed I kept cruising around the same industrial park area, but I was really just looking for good shots. I do night photography so people think I'm creeping, but really I just want to be left alone.

From Paducah to Calvert city (Calvert is at the top of the map partially covered)
Through Calvert to grand rivers
Through grand rivers down the trace (the major backbone between the lakes) to dover, for a shorter trip hang a right just past the elk and bison Prarie at hwy 68. It'll take you all the way to Reidland (basically paducah). Golden pond planetarium is nice for a pink Floyd laser light show every once in awhile, it's not far from the 68/trace junction.
If going all the way to dover hang a right at the t (73 maybe) go over the bridge, take the first right for the scenic way home.

We usually just pick a direction and head out, there're many good drives out here. Livingston Co around smithland used to have a really nice stretch just north of smithland but they smoothed it out a few years ago.

Illinois i24 and i57 have nice straightaways if you like sustained high speed driving. 24 in western ky has a couple good high speed straights but the majority of the areas roads are to curvy.

However, I24 from Western ky to Nashville is fun at any speed, especially once you get down into tennessee. About 30 miles before Nashville on 24 it starts to get real hilly and there is a pretty good descent or two that are just badass to drive.

Ballard county is fun to drive sometimes depending on what you're in. There are gravel roads for days and nobody seems to care if you drink and drive or smoke and drive if that's your preference. Me and friends have spent days getting nasty on dirt, camping out, and then doing it again the next day in the wma. It borders the river so there's always creeks and mud if that's your preference.

If creeks and mud are your preference there are several atv parks close by. Turkey bay in lbl is OK, it's closest so that's where I usually go when I go to an actual owned/official place. Mud and truck fests at bricks off road park and the like are within the area as well.

Live a city over from Niagara falls Canada. Best night drive is to take the highway just past the falls then take the Niagara parkway which is right next to the Niagara river all the way to Niagara on the way then drive beside the lake all the way home. The best is getting stopped at the canal and getting to watch a shop go through.

It's the source of enjoyment I find disturbing. Watching something as benign and boring as a train drive past. It's hauling crates full of useless chinese trinkets or half-dead chickens.

And it's not like train enthusiasts own and build their own trains - they're just watching all the time. It's like someone who says they love reading, but only listens to audiobooks.

Music is an art form. And those are forms of expression. Watching trains is an expression of a mental disability.

When scouting for new places to eat with my friends, I can end up driving to some out of the way places. One thing google maps is good for is to zoom up and you start to see all the restaurant names. My friends and I eat out once per week at a new place. It can even be a bad or slumming place. It just has to be new to us as a whole.

It was a few years ago but driving around with him for hours for no reason two or three nights a week was some of the most fun i ever had and i think about it a lot honestly.

Still too cold to cruise with the windows down, but I live in a valley with mountains on 3 sides. Two of those roads lead to what we would call foothills and the other goes into actual mountains. Fun roads but everything is pretty spaced out here, so it takes a bit to get there but there's no rush when cruising. In my hometown there's a lake just on the other side of some steep hills overlooking the town, so quite a few people go up there to cruise at night. City lights on one side and the lake on the other for about 6 miles or so, and then you can get into the canyons if you want. Was pretty nice living there desu.

In the USA, the muslim "community" is very quick to file discrimination and hate crime lawsuits for any public criticism. If they know your identity, they will file. There are now lots of muslim lawyers in the USA and they freely donate their time and effort. Even if they don't win, they put it on your record and it does cost you money. And if they can get you fired from your job, they will do that. They terrorize and use the Chilling Effect to prevent any and all criticism that isn't anonymous.

So it is a "sharia law" of sorts already.

>>16872316
>He noticed I kept cruising around the same industrial park area,
But that is what thieves do when scouting an area to see employee and security guard patterns before trying to prowl work trucks and vans.

Homeless parking is another issue. It's a strong statistical truth that increases crime and waste dumping. The police strongly patrol our industrial area and call for tow of homeless cars (no warning to move). Since the whole area is marked with those tow signs, it is legal to tow immediately without warning to leave. That is how the police and companies created a reputation that homeless should not park there ever.

That doesn't sound very autistic. What kind of DRIVER are you?
>>
I pick a direction and drive until I run out of gas. Once I need to fill up I pick a new direction. Repeat until I'm completely lost. After that I ask a hobo where I'm at and how to get back home.

No GPS. No planning. Just open road. I don't even bring a cell phone or debit card. Just cash.

I usually just drive past shopping centres and main roads on fri/sat nights, usually there'll be a car meet in some car park so we just go check it out. honestly tho if i lived in america with such cheap petrol I would drive cruise around pretty much every single night, only thing stopping me now is fuel prices in australia suck

I live in a area with a lot of 'nascar types' who happen to have some money to blow. So any given saturday or sunday if its nice out and im bored i literally just cruise up and down the same 10mi strip and usually fuck around and run into people looking to do the same.

There are several regular "meet" type auto groups out there. I sometimes get take out and then drive over there to eat while seeing what goes on. Some people plan day trips to go out to explore somewhere on a day trip. I look forward to those.

When I was pretty young (around 12-13) I got Need for Speed: Underground 2 and after a couple years what I started doing with the game was this:

Went into explore/free roam mode, got any car, changed transmission to manual, shifted it up to top gear. This was the only way to get the car to accelerate "normally" and not launch off the line to 60 in 3 seconds, unless I was using a stock car. Then I'd just cruise around the city as if I was driving IRL. I would get behind traffic and try to avoid hitting anything, which in Most Wanted could cause police to chase you. I'd do this for an hour or two at a time. I did the same thing with the original Most Wanted when it came out. I even had my own tunes playing in the background.

Fuck, it only occurred to me recently that I did this but it's funny to look back on it now because I love driving so much that I take leisurely cruises multiple times a week. Sometimes for 30 minutes, sometimes for 3 hours.

I even have a playlist now with songs from the aforementioned NFS games and every now and again I'll play them, like I'm right back in the game.

Nah, that guy just didn't explain his complaint very well. What he should have said was that taking pictures of distant objects with the flash on doesn't work. But the camera sets an shorter exposure time when the flash is on. What that camera user should have done was picked a night exposure mode or directly made an exposure setting if he "claimed" photography knowledge.
>>
>>16870944
Sometimes I cruise the main road in my town, sometimes I cruise the highway the same way you do. I also like to drive out of town and hit up dark backroads.
>>
>>16883284
Except nobody said anything about flash to begin with. Nor did I ever imply a night shot should show every last bit of detail.

The thing is, if you go out at night on a city street, you will still see much more than what his photo showed us.

The reason I called that shot underexposed is because most of the details are muddy or just too dark. If you go out on a street at night it doesn't look like that, there's usually much more detail than what he's showing.

It looks like he shot at a very narrow aperture and didn't expose long enough to compensate.
>>
>>16883321

Again, you're pretending you know about photography.

Night photography isn't about seeing every single detail in every photograph. It's about making something visually interesting, especially if it's highlighting the atmosphere.

That looks like a dark side street with no traffic, so I'd say the shot captures it well.

Your photo, on the other hand, is instagram-tier.
>>
>>16883658
>pretending to know about photography
Because I know how exposure programs work on cameras, I'm "pretending". Gotcha.

>isn't about seeing every detail
Nobody said that, you were called out on your poor exposure however.

>that shot captures it well
>It's about making something visually interesting
So tell me what about that shot is visually interesting? There is no subject or even any real point of interest. A single lonely car or person, anything. My eyes don't go for anything but the street lights because they're the brightest thing in the frame, but then I don't find anything stimulating there because they don't lead to anything. You didn't even really try to use composition to make any sort of engaging image.

>instagram tier
Really, that's the best you have?

/o/ - Photography

Not wanting to shit on your self-righteous parade here, but I just googled "night photography".

This was the first result:

You better head on over to NIKON USA and tell them they don't know how to take photos you crusty manbaby.

Just look at all of the "under exposure" you triggered faggot. Better tell NIKON you don't approve of their skills. Maybe you could offer to teach them a thing or two, eh kiddo?

That shot you posted is underexposed. Get over it. If it's supposed to be a "street at night"? Well it doesn't work because we can barely see the street. We can barely see anything.

In the images you posted there's the silhouettes of important landmarks coupled with light trails that help shape the scene and draw the eye in. It's incredibly obvious what we're supposed to be looking at. In the shot you posted there is *nothing* of significance. There's nothing going on.

I never *once* said that you need to have all the details visible. Underexposure means there wasn't enough light let in to expose any important details at all, though if I'm honest from the looks of it there wouldn't have been a difference made for that shot.

When I lived in the city i'd drive on the motorways and busy roads when they're empty at like 3 am.
Now that I live in the country I just drive to the next town over, chill in the park reading a book for a bit then drive home. I'll hoon around sometimes if I'm angry or had a shit day.

I do this too sometimes. I've been hunting for a nice, secluded spot that I can relax during the summer. I feel like any place that's good will already be known to rapists though, so I don't know if that spoils the fun...or increases it.

With my old car I was confined to certain boundaries because of the many miles on the odometer.

I've recently got my first nice car with only 65K and it hasn't yet dawned on me that I can pretty much go wherever and just hit the road.

I'm getting pretty bored driving past Walmart and parking in the fire lane so I may finally venture off.

Although there is no point going anywhere when it's cold outside.

Canadafag here, I know your feels. I'm looking to do a roadtrip this summer, probably in July. I want to see some of your southern states like Arizona and New Mexico. I finally have something reliable that I like driving, and I know I can get another 400,000km out of it so I just want to drive everywhere with it.

>You're the only one here who thinks you know anything
I already knew I knew more about photography when anon threw a shit fit over me simply uttering the word "underexposure", insisting that I was trying to be "cool" or "savvy" for understanding elementary photographic terms. It's not like photography is a difficult thing to learn either, and if you can learn how to build/maintain/drive an automobile enough to want to post on /o/ - Auto about it, you can learn about photography. It's pretty telling that you think I'm "bragging" about anything when I'm simply using words and concepts you're unfamiliar with, but it's not like you couldn't spend a couple hours on the internet learning this shit yourself.

>You're acting like an asshole
Yes I am because everyone else here is being an asshole. I'm not even the one saying faggot five times in one post.
