Road trips

posted Apr 08, 2016 18:19:38 by Dandelion
Do you have any tips for making road trips go by quicker? My daughter and I have to go back and forth between Pennsylvania and Georgia several times over the next few months and I'm not looking forward to this many 12 hour drives. I would fly, but these days with security and other airport complications, it would take almost as long to fly as it does to drive.

You didn't say how old your daughter is or if you have any time restrictions.
The difference between the cost a of plane trip and auto expense is great. I would probably:
just make a fun trip out of it by stopping often at parks, shopping malls, and other fun places. Most rest stops have park benches where you can eat food you either buy on the road or pack "picnic" baskets at home before you leave. If you get tired or sleepy a nice motel with TV etc. would be a plus. You would arrive at your destination rested and happy. A hurried trip is a worried trip.

I always take along something to listen to. I have a preacher friend and he gives me cds of his sermons. I have some audio books on cds and I have some favorite music cds. If your daughter is younger you could find something age appropriate to sing along with.

Road trips are such a great adventure if you aren't on a strict time schedule. I have a good friend who is taking a road trip with his family. They are taking a two week trip and stopping at ever tourist attraction along the way. It looks like so much fun!

Have you tried the license plate game? I remember playing this when I was a kid and it helped lots to pass the time. Also, how about counting cows or red cars or transfer trucks. Anything to help pass the time. 12 hours is a long time on the road at one stretch.
