To Plan or Not to Plan…

Right or left? Decide as you go. Who hasn’t dreamed of hitting the road with a wad of cash and unlimited time, making no plans, just going with the flow, turning when you feel like turning, stopping when you feel like stopping?

You Mean We SAVE Money?!

DSCF4214

I will admit that on our first big family trip, we drove simply because it was too expensive to fly with a family of five and because the children were small, I looked for things to do along the way so they could have much needed breaks from the car.

Trips from my hometown in northern Michigan to Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania, Wyoming, California, as I got older, trips to Virginia, Massachusetts, Washington D.C. , Maine and Canada and from Virginia to North Carolina during my short time living there. I’ve been privileged to see much of what this amazing country has to offer.
