It's been quite awhile since I've taken a fun and extended road trip. With gas prices falling to affordable prices, it was time to hit the highway and see who I could meet along the way.

I first flew to Oklahoma City to briefly visit family, including my two sisters. I was picking up a car to drive back to San Francisco and with a little time to kill I decided to head west on Route 66, or what's left of it. Mostly, I drove Interstate 40 which runs parallel to the infamous and mythical Mother Road.

The famous road originally stretched from Chicago through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona to cover 2,448 miles before it ends at Santa Monica, California.

On this trip, I take a few detours along the way and meet up with an incredible cast of characters to be featured in upcoming episodes.

In Episode #11 I unwittingly wind my way into the tiny town of Erick, Oklahoma. I spotted a sign promoting the Roger Miller Museum, and I figured what better than an opportunity to pay homage to the creator of one of the greatest driving and travel songs of all time - King of the Road.

I was greeted at the door by a very kind and willing victim to my antics. Marylin was so kind to share her knowledge of Roger Miller's life and career as she escorts me around this small town shrine to its most famous resident.

It's a fun and fascinating look into the life of a man who won 11 Grammy's in his first two years as a professional musician. His singer-songwriter career was legendary, and he entertained American audiences for decades.

Sure, time passed him by much like what happened to old Route 66. But it's also true that parts of the old highway remain and thousands of people drive it annually out of nostalgia and for it authenticity and quirky attractions.

I think the same of Roger Miller and his music. Yeah, he and Route 66 are from another era, but visiting on this road trip was like a portal back to a simpler time and friendlier place.

Join Marylin and me as we discuss Roger Miller and living the simple life in Erick, Oklahoma - a tiny town unassumingly situated along America's Main Street.

I have many reasons why I like to drive. The other night, my friends decided to have a trip. We went to Central Park on a whim. We chilled there for a few hours before going on our search for some chocolates, but we ended up craving for some pasta instead. We then decided to drive down to Manhattan at 3 am. Naturally, the restaurant was still closed. Since we drove all the way there for some chocolates, we decided to wait it out. We parked the car out front and all of us ended up falling asleep as we waited for the store to open.

For a while, I thought it is the car that we get to call "King of the Road". Lately I noticed that cars cannot help you in the middle of traffic. They just need to make you comfortable while you are on a very slow trip. We might as well just stay in hotel rooms than spend half day in the streets. I think bicycle are the real kings of the road now. I forgot to mention that you don't get to be called "king" unless you are a human or a lion. So maybe if you can rule the road by wheel or by foot, you get to be the king.
