What amuses you while traveling?

1) Watching Carolyn enter into a stranger's vehicle, most amusing!
2) Watching Carolyn's expression as I tell her when we get close to customs that we will be stripped searched.
3) Watching Carolyn's expression as the airplane is about to take off and she hears a loud sound.
4) Watching Carolyn in the Dungeons of London Bridges being frightened as we were the last ones in the line.
5) Watching Carolyn dodge birds in London has had me very weak with laughter.
6) Watching Carolyn unfold tons of jewelry and makeup out of her luggage.

Whilst driving we play 'Pub Legs.' You take it in turns as you pass pubs you count the number of legs in the name or on the sign. Example:
Player 1: We pass a pub called The Fox so player one scores 4 legs.
Player 2: We pass The Crown so no legs scored.
Player 3: We pass The Coach and Horses, the sign shows two horses and a driver so player 3 scores 10 legs.

Looking down from the height of my pickup window into the passenger seat of passing cars - strange things are going on at times.

Hi there!  Yes, she is!  She is handling the public transport like a great sport!  What have you been up to lately?

1) Watching Carolyn enter into a stranger's vehicle, most amusing!
2) Watching Carolyn's expression as I tell her when we get close to customs that we will be stripped searched.
3) Watching Carolyn's expression as the airplane is about to take off and she hears a loud sound.

When I take another car trip I will make sure I will play this. 

Whilst driving we play 'Pub Legs.' You take it in turns as you pass pubs you count the number of legs in the name or on the sign. Example:
Player 1: We pass a pub called The Fox so player one scores 4 legs.

The driver may have been monopedic.

There's a pub in Banbury called The Slug And Lettuce (actually, it's gone now). Would you include the legs of the bugs on the lettuce?

Only if they are pictured clearly on the sign. The slug may have a foot but it is no points as it is the leg we are counting. Any more referees decisions required and you know who to call.

I shoot signs with my Dirty Harry gun - a long barreled .44 Magnum. To heck with counting the legs, hit the sign, dufus.

I just wish she would be more amusing now....I am on the otherside of the cafe and she is engrossed with her screen.  Maybe I should send her a popup of a birdie, eh? What do you think?

We did this last night! 20pts, very amusing as I was told fish do not count...geez, if you are drunk you might notice that fish has legs? lol

Player 1: We pass a pub called The Fox so player one scores 4 legs.

If the picture of the fish on the sign had legs then they count....pssst! I'd sneak back to the pub in the early hours with a felt tip and draw some legs onto the sign. Then you can claim victory.

Mostly I read and play portables. Other people get sick doing that stuff, but I guess I'm lucky.

I concentrate on the 18 wheelers that pass and that pass me. I also watch out for other problems. I drive - never ride.
