I can’t believe there’s less than a week left of June! The combination of the flurry of activity for the unbloggable coupled with trying to get ready for our vacation (which was supposed to start yesterday, but is starting today) has really made the month fly by at lightning speed. Yesterday was definitely a hectic day – last minute laundry, packing (since I can’t seem to manage to do that ahead – always last minute for me!), last minute errands and making sure the coolers are stocked with healthy (and not-so-healthy) snacks and treats for the road. Let’s hope I didn’t forget anything important.
Very early this morning (or as early as possible, considering Princess Nagger is definitely not a morning person), we’ll be hitting the road heading towards Corn Country to visit my sister and her hubby in Iowa. For two weeks. It definitely couldn’t have come at a better time, we certainly need the break from reality for a bit, after the exhaustion we’ve been experiencing between the awesome unbloggable coupled with hubby’s bout with shingles last week, and making sure we don’t forget anything before we leave for our trip.
My parents have already arrived in Iowa after driving straight through from Seattle – straight through, people! A 27-1/2 hour drive (per MapQuest with no stops)…yes, my parents are definitely crazy, why do you ask? The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, it appears. We, being much younger than they are, and only slightly less crazy, are going to take our time and split our 16-ish hour drive from our house to my sister’s house over two days – not drive straight through.
We kind of look forward to the break in the middle, Princess Nagger especially likes the opportunity to jump from one bed to the next in our hotel room, and hubby is looking forward to imbibing in Skyline Chili for dinner. Not to mention Princess Nagger is really looking forward to our in-between stop at COSI in Ohio to peruse the 10,000 square feet of Dinosaur excitement they have there this summer. So today we’ll be on the road – and while I like country I’m not a fan of Willie Nelson, but the song “On the Road Again” is definitely running through my head.
Which brings me to this week’s question(s):
When you take a road trip, do you prefer to drive straight through and get to your destination as soon as possible? Or do you like to take your time and see the sights along the way?
I’ll be looking forward to seeing your answers – and stopping by to see your question(s) when we stop for the night at our hotel and relax. Have a great weekend!
