We all need a road trip now and then, because the right road, with the right crew of friends, and the right tunes on the stereo can work wonders for the soul.

Do you calculate gas costs before you hit the road?

Go Farther On Cheaper Gas — You’re volunteering your car to take all your friends on this road trip, but you’re not springing for the gas. Your gang will appreciate some advance planning on the cheapest gas pit stops with some help from the AAA Fuel Finder. You can add and subtract additional map layers to show restaurants, points of interest and more, as well as plot routes in the same interface.

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

Robert Louis Stevenson

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.
