Gordon Dickson grew up in El Paso and spent his glorious college years in New Mexico, which probably explains his appetite for long drives. He has worked at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram for 10 years, the last five as transportation writer.
He really does love to drive, although these days most trips involve a booster seat and a box of wipes. His personal car is nothing to write home about, but it is equipped with satellite radio, which Gordon believes is the best invention since ... uh, the wheel ???
