Do you cringe or smile when you hear the words “Road Trip?”
I actually love it! My sweet man and I often road trip. We don’t just jump in the car and go. We plan. Actually sweet man plans it all. He figures out the route, the hotels, antique stores and for me he thinks about photo ops. Which means the SIGHTS in the area that we will enjoy and I can photograph. I’ll also do some research about the SIGHTS. Then we head out.
I always pack healthy food to munch on while we are on the move. It helps us from getting “HANGRY!” …but we will partake in the local food. I love trying something new and enjoy what the area is known for.

You have to know and understand your partner when traveling. To say it simply… don’t let a beautiful trip turn into an argument. Know who is best at the driving and the navigating. And KNOW what works best for your situation. And if tempers do flare… forgive and forget as a road trip can be tiring! Play great music… some karaoke can make everyone happy!
My honey knows I love old trucks… when he sees one he will point it out or pull over so I can take a picture!
He waits patiently while I take a million captures.

Sometimes with all the sightseeing a thirst for a cold one comes up! Especially if old memories need to be relived.
