Annual family road trip time- from the mountains of Utah to the beaches of Southern California. We all gladly pile into the car, like a bunch of sardines and try and distract ourselves from 11 hours of tight company. I think I’ve driven this stretch of highway at least 194 times in my lifetime, I could do it with my eyes closed- just kidding.
It’s essential to bring along as many bikes as you can tie onto the outside of your car- road bike, cruiser, cargo cruiser, pea picker and one or two more. Strap on a few skateboards and scooters, throw in the fruit boots, I mean roller blades too.
A brief stop to discuss your road trip fruit choices and perhaps hand your oranges over. When I was a kid, my mom used to pull over and make us kids eat all of the fruit that was to be confiscated. I was mortified at the time, now I would make my kids do the same thing.
