I had fun planning a full day of road tripping – offering to pick up friends and coming up with reasons to travel along some of my favorite road-test-worthy back roads that offered swaying curves and rowdy bumps. Weeeeeeee
On the heels of the big annual North American International Auto Show in Detroit, It’s fun to think about the possibility of getting a new car. The Detroit auto show and my participation in it were timely this year, because I am in fact looking for a new car as mine was trashed by a large oak tree during Sandy.
This Green Divas is a consummate road warrior. I usually travel alone, but this time, I got to travel with my daughter-in-law from New Jersey to Austin, TX. Some would see the trip as being stuck in a car for a few days. I see it as having a chance to have my daughter-in-law all to myself for a few days. And if I am traveling on my own, I get excited about catching up on some books-on-tape or working on some language skills, etc. Here are some of the ways I take care of myself while on the road so that I am not burned out when I arrive.
