Only days away from our 4000+ mile driving trip, we have been having some thoughts about the trip itself.
Not traveling more than 550 miles a day has made our driving trips much easier to handle at our age. We are on the road 10-11 hours but make multiple stops, take walks at the stops and pull over to see thing that look interesting.
Using technology on the trip makes the trip easier and more enjoyable. We are using our blue tooth phones to stream our favorite music from Amazon all across country and listen to books that we both enjoy. First book on the agenda for us is Charles Dickens, “Nickolas Nickelby.”
We added a couple of things on our “to do” list on this trip; Monitor the cost of things by state that have to do with traveling. Gas, lodging and food costs certainly on the list.
Being we are both diabetic’s and must eat at regularly so we are going to use local supermarkets with deli’s and local park for our meals. Some of our favorite memories have memories have occurred in the small town parks and stores. Chased by geese, begging dogs, and friendly people who just wanted to talk.
