At least, not without a computer.

3. ...and get in fights over which coast is the best coast.

Midwest Coast wins, obviously.

Be honest, you've probably watched entire TV seasons through Skype.

5. You spend more time driving to see them than actually seeing them.


That's when you know it's real.

6. You understand weird, local words — from "hella" to "uff da."

Yinz should brush up on your regionalisms.

7. Driving to pick up people at the airport is basically your commute. / Via

And when you're not late, it's them.

8. You receive your BFF's texts from last night before your own night has even started.


"It's not even 5 p.m. yet."

9. You've gotten really good at packing a weekend bag. / Via

(Hint: it's about shoe moderation.)

10. You always add a few out-of-towners to your guest lists.

If they're planning a surprise visit, now would be a good time.

11. You're well acquainted with your friends' schedules...

12. ...and make sure not to call them with TV spoilers when they're hours behind you.

"I promise, I won't even mention you-know-who, who did or did not die."

13. You plan trips based on how many friends you can see along the way.


Like layovers, only 1000x better.

14. You might have celebrated a birthday with fewer friends than you wanted...


At least there's cake?

15. ...but you know just how good it feels to see each other again.


Reunited, and it feels AMAZING.

Bonus points if you make new friends on your road trips — like in the 3,000-Mile Test Drive starring the all-new Hyundai Sonata.
