"Lame" is such a subjective term. Try to sell it like a pleasant drive in the country. Downplay the "car guy" aspect. Seriously, the roads are really nice, both scenery- and driving-wise. Push the former, avoid the latter.
It looks like we'll probably be doing the drive in 2 parts, with a stop in Cold Spring in the middle. Best bet will likely be a BYOL (bring your own lunch) picnic before we head off. Driving could be up to 2 hours or so, but again, this will be split and you could forego the second session if the complaining from the right seat got too loud - or you could let her drive...
I'll post a more complete plan later this week once the drive details are worked out. Also, for those of you planning ahead, it looks like it will most likely be Sunday.
