Every time the topic of travel comes up between myself and another dude, it gets invariably detailed. My father and fathers in law are probably the worst offenders in my inner circle, but it's definitely not limited thereto. To the eye-rolling chagrin of all women within earshot, discussion topics to include: detailed account of which interstates, highways and fire roads we took; quality of traffic in various cities; when and why, a.k.a. driving strategy; how the [vehicle] is doing; pros and cons of renting a car; cost/benefit of driving vs. flight, a.k.a. travel economics where we stopped to eat, relieve or [other]; Every single time, without fail. I know it isn't normal, but is this at least common?
