Road Trippin'

That sounds like a fabulous trip. My advice is that while you need to be disciplined, make sure you are impulsive as well. If something looks like fun, stop. Read historical markers. Don’t drive the planned ten hours. That kind of stuff.

I used to plan every minute of our vacations, but two summers ago (or was it three?) Henry and I drove around Lake Superior, stopping wherever we wanted. We had a few deadlines (a wedding, meeting friends in Michigan), but other than that, we just played it by ear for the most part. It’s one of our favourite trips. I’m sure it’s easier to be spontaneous without kids but a little impulsiveness is good.
