Road trips are one of my favorite ways to travel. As a child, my dad would load up the car and we would just go. My dad loved to travel and drive apparently because we would travel cross country by car with no complaints. I don’t actually think I set foot on an airplane until I was a teenager.
Automobile travel continues to change as technology evolves but the freedom of the open road remains the same. Looking out the window while driving creates an adventure all in itself. It’s a great way to see the world
I almost feel silly saying this but let it serve as a reminder to double check because this could ruin your trip.
Unless you are lucky to drive an electric car, you should fill up the night before so you are ready to hit the road early morning if that is the plan. Electric cars of course need to be charged and you should also take note of charging spots along your route.
Most cars now are equipped with infotainment centers that include navigation but it is no harm in having a printed copy along with using your phone. A fun activity is to use an actual map and have the kids to trace the route.
A good healthy mix of snacks will not only save you money but keep you rolling. Sheetz provides us a great bang for the buck. They have something to please everyone and hot food that is delicious.
