A few quick thoughts on road trips

1.  The amazing packing you do to get everything in car explodes on the road making unpacking much harder.

2.  Sometimes putting an extra hour of time into the drive is worth it for a good meal.

3.  Portable DVD players have changed the road trip forever.

4.  Is there ever really a comfortable ride when you are going that far?

5.  Getting home is always good.

Sorry for the short post this week.  Maybe I'll come up with more to say tomorrow.  (Don't hold your breath waiting on that one.)

  1. Packing is always the good part but i hate when you get back home and have to unpack and wash everything! but road trips are fun but to answer the question i dont think there is any comfortable ride, unless your rich and can get a limo or something.

  2. No there's no way to get comfortable in a long car ride unless of course you are in a big limo. Wow wouldn't that be nice. But the packing part I completely understand. I have trouble putting everything neat in the beginning but when I'm coming home the bags are a mess! I love coming home and sleeping in my own bed the first night home. -jordan

  3. Even when the bed I was sleeping in was nice, it still wasn't mine. Your own bed is amazing after a trip!

  4. i always manage to forget everything on road trips! haha like on the retreat... i forgot socks, so i had to steal everyone elses. but man do i hate packing! and have u ever noticed it takes sooo much longer to get there than to get home?? ive always wondered why. but getting home is always great, except when i have a trashy room the next day cause i just threw everything in the floor and went to bed haha -kayla

  5. I don't bother to take it out of the bag until I'm going to wash it or put it away. Sometimes that's like a couple weeks.

    Oh and I always forget socks! I'm so glad I married a guy who always has them!

  6. 1. The amazing packing you do to get everything in car explodes on the road making unpacking much harder. - packing is the horribliest thing that is apart of the whole traveling process -.- especially on short vacations because it takes forever just to unpack it all again

    2. Sometimes putting an extra hour of time into the drive is worth it for a good meal. - AGREED family like mine usually never wants to stop because it is time consuming but honestly i would rather eat a nice burger on the road then nothign at all!

    3. Portable DVD players have changed the road trip forever. we have one lets the kids be quite haha and eventually nap time

    4. Is there ever really a comfortable ride when you are going that far? yes! bring a pillow bring a blanket take a pil im sure we will all fall asleep

    5. Getting home is always good. - safe ride home is something to be happy about
