I long for a good old fashioned road trip. You know the kind where you have a final destination in mind but have not planned every detail or every moment because you want to really enjoy the trip. My husband remembers taking a few road trips with his mom and some family members from time to time growing up. He retells of seeing a sign for an unusual attraction or roadside diner and pulling off to see what adventure awaits.
I think I tend to want to rush to our destination to get the car ride over but I do long to stop at Historical Markers or see that unusual site to be had. We often get out the door much later then I plan which makes everyone rushed. Hubby and I have talked about pouring tired kids into the car so early in the morning that we have to eat breakfast on the way. This would give us time to stop a few extra times and not be bored at the ride but be excited for the journey.
I have been thinking of ways to make a road trip memorable and since I am a planner I thought of some things that I can look up before we hit the road.
