When we bought our Ford Flex, we decided that the kids were old enough to no longer need a dvd player. Although we had on in our Pilot, we rarely let the kids watch it. I’m just not much of a tv-type of gal, I especially don’t think there’s much place for it in my kids’ lives. There is so much to do and see, especially when traveling, that we rarely turned it on. Still, I’ll be the first to admit that there were several trips where I was quite thankful to have them put on their headsets so Bret and I could talk in peace.
We were thrilled, however, to find that the Flex is equipped with satellite radio. For some reason, Bret thinks all road trips must be set to country music, so the fact we wouldn’t have to channel surf was one advantage. The true joy, however, came in the form of channel 82 – Radio Classics. We loved listening to the old-time radio shows. The dramatic music, the plots that required complete attention, the novelty of having to follow a story line without a character to watch. It was the quietest the car has ever been.
