Over these long weekends, you might have nothing to do. If you need way to spend all that free time, try going for a weekend drive. Find a long highway and drive down it for a few hours. In addition to gaining experience and getting a bunch of hours for your license, you also might see some great views. Maybe try driving down the beach if you live near one. Anyways, I got about two-and-a-half hours from one trip. Try it out!
