Present research suggests that motor vehicle travel shapes how people experience places, simultaneously transforming the communities and landscapes encountered. The purpose of this research is to explore the relationship between place perception and vehicle-based travel by examining the motor vehicle tourism experience, and measuring the outcome through stories of the experience.

Ok, done.

Though I would say this was a bucket list item, thought about for more than 40 years. A lot of relevant things one learns by life experience. ie., paying attention to what`s going on in that area makes one learn that more forest fires occur in spring or earlier summer. Thus, less likely to have road interruptions late in summer and early fall, though some things are inaccessible in early fall.
