Wife. She gets tense if I drive fast, and complains if I drive slow. Add to that, we fight all the time because she loves and wants to drive too, and I hate to be in the passenger seat. Still it is so much fun to drive with her and my daughter around.

Mostly alone, as I have something or other job assigned to me by family/friends or my own needs.
In future also, I'll mostly be traveling alone, with my engine singing.

I would prefer to drive with my friends as they do not mind the traveling time which translates to driving/covering more distance. Driving with wife/kids is always within 400 kms/day. Though I have voted for "Friends", I equally love driving with wife n kids , which is enjoyable in its own way

With the entire family, that is parents, wife and daughter. Sometimes I do tend to get carried away when driving with friends.

My wife & with soft music. She never allows me to keep the music loud. (because it will disturb her chat with me)

it can vary actually.
if my drive intends to be absolutely pointless and gains nothing but driving pleasure then Alone is my choice.
If going somewhere like for lunch/dinner then has to be GF/friends else you will look like a loner.

Of course with wife. In this hectic life style and running around all the time, driving is the place where we have time for ourselves.

Wife - because we do a lot of driving holidays together.
Dogs - because before marriage I used to take one or all of my dogs along for company. mostly at night, within the city, while visiting friends etc. taking them out of town is not so easy unless one is camping because most places dont allow pets.(We still take them here and there but mostly within the city. this poll/ thread has triggered an urge in me to go camping again along with the wife and the doggies!!)
Parents - because before I went away to work, when on school/ college holidays we used to do a number of driving trips together.
I dont really like driving alone because when one shares fun and experience with others, it is literally doubled.

Ideally alone. At brisk speeds that would keep me alert. And with fairly loud music surrounding me.
