Good news for my dad

I can now authoritatively tell you how to say "hit the road" grammatically in German: not "schlagen die Straße" but "schlagen gegen die Straße". Gegen = against, and is required when you talk about hitting a thing (as opposed to slugging someone). So "let's hit the road" would be "schlagen wir gegen die Straße."

I doubt very much whether it's idiomatic, but at least it's correct.
