When you plan a trip, the company you keep is more important than the destination. No matter how antisocial or introverted you may be, there is probably someone in your life that you have fun with no matter where you go. These are the kind of people that you want to take on random trips. That isn’t to say that you shouldn’t take a chance on a spontaneous companion, but before you embark on your journey take a moment to think. Is this person a Sam or a Gollum? Some people can make glorious destinations like Vegas or Miami a drag. There are others who could find a way to have fun even if you dropped them in the middle of Amish Country.

Before you put your key in the ignition, look to your right. The person sitting next to you can make or break your weekend. Choose wisely.
