A different road

Off on a road trip.  I hate road trips.  3 hours each direction for an 'obligatory' visit.
I keep putting it off but need to go.  It's 7:30 am, sooner I leave the sooner I'll be there.
Going to be super, duper pissed if I go into a flare.  My degenerated disks hate road trips too.  I hate driving.  I hate feeling obligated.
