I think the thing I dislike most about these extended road trips for work is the pressure to be social. Most days I barely make it through an 8 hour work day without wanting to run away to be alone, but spending twelve to fifteen hours with the same people, never a moment to yourself is a special kind of torment. Even though everyone is quite nice, I find the inane conversations quite tiring and talking about work has a natural limit with such a small group. Just leave me alone to knit quietly in the back of the car.
