WWTK Wednesday: Takin’ a road trip

This weeks “We Want to Know”, hosted by Mamarazzi and Queso, is all about road trips.  Linking it up!!

WWTKbutton-1

{1} What are 3 must haves for a long road trip?
{2} What was the destination of your most recent road trip?
{3} What do you miss most about home when on a trip?
{4} What is the furthest you have traveled on a road trip?
{5} Will you "stop for the largest ball of twine, etc" or are you a "hurry and get there" road tripper?

Here are my answers:

{1} What are 3 must haves for a long road trip?  Tunes, snacks, and a good book. 

{2} What was the destination of your most recent road trip?  I guess that would have been last summer, when I went with my brother and his girlfriend to Midland, MI for the ISC Tournament of Champions.  About a 12-hour drive, including stops for bathroom and food, and a long-ass wait at the border.

{3} What do you miss most about home when on a trip?  Absolutely, 100%, without a doubt, MY BED.  Followed closely by family and friends who aren’t with me on the trip – I wish I could go somewhere and take EVERYBODY with me.  And my bed.  When I came home from Cuba and climbed into my bed again for the first time, I swear it felt like it was made of puffy clouds and angel wings.  Heavenly.

{4} What is the furthest you have traveled on a road trip?  I’d say that trip to Midland was the longest.  I took a high school bus trip to New York and Washington, but the drive to Midland definitely felt longer (I have no idea, geographically, which is further).  I like road trips, just not long long ones, and I was starting to get a little punchy by the time we got there.

{5} Will you "stop for the largest ball of twine, etc" or are you a "hurry and get there" road tripper?  Depends on who I’m traveling with and where we’re going.  Usually on the way there, I’m up for more stops (especially if they include food, and I need to pee like every twenty minutes, so there really isn’t much choice.)  But to get out and do photo ops and sight-see on the way?  Can’t say I’ve ever done that.  Even LESS likely on the way home.  I’m a homebody, so by the time the trip is winding down and we’re heading for home, I just want to GET THERE.

So.  Now I’m definitely feeling the urge to take a roadtrip!!  Who’s with me?!?

Hey Jilly!

I hear you on the wanting to just get home. Crazy how after a vacation, you need a rest before heading back to everyday life.

The road home is NEVER the time for sight seeing. Dreams of comfy beds, sitting on your own couch with your own remote is blissful after a long road trip. :)

I heard that Canada opens the doors with open arms but to get back in the US, even being a citizen is difficult. both my parents have been to Canada at one point or another, both have the same feelings. I went to Costa Rica and getting back into the US was like pulling teeth! but yet those who come here illegally, we want to grandfather them in and let them stay... I don't get it!

I'm long overdue for a road trip. I haven't been back to the Valley since December. :(
