Are you planning a road trip any time soon? As many of you know, we are hoping to take an epic summer road trip so we are planning and preparing with an Ultimate Guide to Road Tripping with the help of some of my favorite people. Today Amy, from the Umbrella Tree Cafe, is going to share her simple tips for a successful family road trip.
10 Simple Tips for a Successful Family Road Trip
- Count the cows- this game is simple. Count the cows in the fields on your side of the road. If you pass a graveyard, your cows die and you have to start over. You can end the game either when one person gets to a certain number of cows, when you get to your destination, or when you get tired of playing.
- Abc game- take turns finding letters on road signs on your side of the road. You must go in order.
- Quaker Meeting (aka the quiet game) – I’m not sure if my mom made this up to get a little peace- but the object of the game is to see who can stay quiet the longest.
- Rhyming- Sometimes we just take turns rhyming and see how many we can come up with in a row. Or make up new silly lyrics to our favorite songs.
The Ultimate Road Trip
We don’t take vacations. No, scratch that… we avoid vacations. The term “vacation” should instill release, comfort, hope and so many other feelings, however in our home it is quite the opposite which is probably why we haven’t taken a family vacation since we got married. However, when the idea of traveling in an RV was mentioned, all of our ears started to perk up. Family vacation might actually be possible. Family vacation might actually be a dream come true.
