An old-fashioned, hop-in-the-car-and-go road trip is about as American as it gets, ain’t it?

If you’re planning one, you might find this tool helpful:

Don’t OD On Circus Peanuts — Someone in your car is bound to eat waaaaay too much gas station food, so just forbid convenience store dining from the get-go.

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go.  I travel for travel’s sake.  The great affair is to move.

And that’s the wonderful thing about family travel:  it provides you with experiences that will remain locked forever in the scar tissue of your mind.
