We Want To Know: Road Trip!

Round two (for me) of We Want To Know Wednesday.  Thanks to Mamarazzi and her friend Queso for another week of digging for my dirt!

And, of course, by dirt I mean more info about me.  Because you didn't already have enough.

{1} What are 3 must haves for a long road trip?
A pillow, a blanket and a driving buddy that doesn't mind me sleeping the entire way to save myself from motion sickness.  Also, said buddy will have to be ok with stopping every three hours so I can stretch my buns.

{2} What was the destination of your most recent road trip?
Corey and I caravaned with my parents and sister to Washington DC and then Virginia.  We both had different versions of the Garmin so we ended up going in different directions, meeting up somewhere in Maryland after Corey and I waited in traffic for-ev-er and my parents stopped at an IHOP for breakfast.

{3} What do you miss most about home when on a trip?
My bed, my dog, my stuff.  Although, I do love, love, love staying in hotel rooms.  There's just something about not having to clean up after myself...

{4} What is the furthest you have traveled on a road trip?
When we moved from California to Indiana we drove.  And we took the biggest detour ever through Mississippi.  It took us two weeks, but that was with three kids under eleven, a dog, and two cars with no air conditioning.

I remember one particular hotel that was infested with fleas.  That may or may not have led my mom to search for bugs on the walls while still asleep.

Then there was that trip from Washington to Southern California, and from way far east New York to Northern Indiana.

{5} Will you "stop for the largest ball of twine, etc" or are you a "hurry and get there" road tripper?
It depends on the trip.  I very much enjoy stopping to see the sights along the way, but sometimes you just want to get where you're going already.

Vague much?

...

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday...I'm laughing already about the Corey story I want to tell tomorrow.


hehe...silly Corey.

Stops to stretch are important. It does feel god to get out and walk around every now and then.

Motion sickness sucks. I've blessed with a strong stomach and am thankful every long trip in a car. (and on roller coasters)

Aww poor Ki has gotten motion sickness since she was a tiny little thing. Thank goodness for dramamine.
