Asphalt and the Great American Road Trip

by | Oct 13, 2017

This country isn’t perfect, but certain American ideals truly do make our nation great. Ours is, after all, a land founded on independence and opportunity. These ideals are evident in many ways, including one that might not come immediately to mind – the great American road trip.

As Americans, we often take for granted the fact we can pack up the car and hit the open road, able to travel freely across state lines. Of course, we also take for granted the role pavement plays in allowing us to do so!

Whether spontaneous or carefully-planned, with family or with friends, road trips are responsible for countless memories. There’s actually a good chance you’re reading these words and reminiscing about some of the road trips you’ve taken.

Part of the allure of these trips—especially if there’s no particular destination in mind—is having the open road out in front of you. When you’re on the road, it’d be surprising if you gave a lot of thought to the concrete or blacktop you are cruising over. More likely, you are taking in the sights of America or figuring out where the next stop will be.

That doesn’t mean you don’t appreciate the paved roads at least a little bit. Rather, you trust the paving experts to get the job done right so you can keep on driving ahead to the next roadside attraction or rest stop. Taking the quality and durability of paved surfaces for granted is exactly what we want you to do after a job.

Technology has, for better or worse, changed the nature of the great American road trip. On one hand, you have less discoveries and surprises along the way. There’s no need, after all to eat at Joe’s, when your app is saying McDonald’s is just two miles ahead. On the other hand, smartphones do let us record and share the experience with friends and family who aren’t along for the ride.

More importantly, though, technological advances in the paving industry have given us better tools and techniques for putting down roads, parking lots, and driveways. (You can trust us on that since we keep up-to-date in the latest paving equipment so we can do the best possible job for you!)

Eh, there’s still something to be said for road-tripping in the good ol’ days.

In all likelihood, you’re probably not about to go out and pave an interstate highway. If you have a parking lot or driveway that needs some work, however, our team at Stripe A Lot is ready to help!
