Our family is still flying high from our summer adventure to Hawaii where we achieved our family goal of visiting 100 National Parks as a family by 2020. Now we are ready to embark on our new goal: Visit a National Park unit in each of the 50 United States! We have already visited 21 out of the 50 states including the entire West Coast, Alaska, and Hawaii. We have already scratched off the states furthest from us which means we will be visiting most of the remaining states on our list via car. That’s right, my friends, it’s road trip time!
Now, road trips in our family are pretty unique. My wife and I have the ability, stamina, and patience to stick it out for long bouts in the car. Plus, our kids can not only entertain themselves (thank you unlimited data, headphones, and power outlets!), we all seem to have bladders of steel allowing us to only stop if we are hungry or need more fuel. To put things in perspective, when we drive down to Bradenton Florida to visit my in-laws we only stop once during the 12 hour drive. Oh and did I mention we don’t eat anything in our cars? Only water bottles allowed? Some say we are strange. I say we are efficient!
I stumbled upon a great blogpost put out by Rand McNally called, “10 Road Trip Essentials You Should Never Travel Without.” They include things like a good GPS, good variety of music, cleaning supplies, etc. Anyway, you should check out the blogpost here!
I’d like to add a few more things to their essential list. They include: a great go-to playlist of music that you just love to sing along to at the top of your lungs and some great stretches you can do in the car so your legs and butt don’t get fatigued. Here’s a link to a great set of yoga poses you can do in the car! And here’s a link to my Spotify Playlist: Minivan Swagger which will fill your car with the sweet sounds of our youth.
And once you get your road trip planned and your car packed, how about you add this awesome prize pack that Rand McNally provided for us to giveaway?
