Someone of you will head out on dirtbikes. Others might have a side-by-side stowed away. Most of you will prefer a car or truck. But I think all of you have some form of self-isolation method you prefer when it comes to a vehicle. Right now, I’m daydreaming of a ride out to some desolate dunes with a Honda Talon in tow. They make a four-seat version now and since the rear has a three-point belt I believe I can attach my daughter’s car seat safely. That means I can bring her and my wife along for the fun.

What is your preferred form of automotive isolation right now?

Yesterday, I took my Montero for a drive out to a trailhead. I hoped it would be open but I suspected correctly that it was closed. So I turned and drove back home. Along the way though, at every hiking spot, I saw hordes of people and cars setting off. It’s great to see people getting back outside, but it’s not what we’re supposed to be doing right now.

Vehicular isolation seems a better idea then. Even if there are others on the trail, you’re in your own world. Not rubbing shoulders (and respiratory droplets) with a hundred other like-minded idiots well-intended folks.

So if you were to head away from the crowds, where would you go and what would you be driving?
