Globetrotting Mama Road Trips: The Series

Globetrotting Mama Road Trips: The Series

If you’ve been following along over the last few years, you may have noticed that I like a road trip.

No? Hadn’t noticed?

Let me point a few out for you.

There was this west coast adventure last summer:

And this one in New Zealand :

The winding road and constantly changing landscapes in New Zealand.

 

And the one that brought us to Myrtle Beach last year:

March in Myrtle Beach meant mini-golf and walks on the beach.

And oh, so many more.

I LOVE being in the car/truck/RV/horse and buggy. There’s something about the fact that I have all the things and people I love together in one spot as we head off on our adventure that has always said vacation to me.

This year, I want more of this:

And so we’ve decided that 2015 will be the year of the Road Trip! (Sound the trumpets!)

We started out the year in top shape. Our roadtrip to Montebello, Quebec for New Years Eve sealed the deal for us. That trip involved a loaner vehicle. We drove the 2015 GMC Acadia from Toronto to Quebec making use of the XM Sattellite Radio, OnStar assistance (directions please!) and heated seats.

While for some being “trapped” in a car for over five hours would be lead to fighting  for us it is always the opposite.

We talk more in the car. We read more. We even spend more time doing our own thing…together.

Road trips to me mean exploring new terrain, getting out and seeing the places that planes don’t fly to and the ones trains rush past. It’s about smaller towns and mom&pop shops. It’s about roadside stands and singing along in horrible harmonies.

And its about what’s happening inside the car too.

So on our 2015 road trips we’ll share our tips and tricks for road trip survival. We’ll offer up some insight on the rides we take and the cars we drive. We’ll share the stories here on the blog and in print, on TV and even on the radio from time to time.

And we’ll always be on social media. In fact, we’re dedicating the hashtag #GMRoadTrip to these experiences.

We’re going on some road trips this year and nothing would make us happier than to have you come along.

How do you feel about road trips? Where would you go? Any plans? Hope to see you on the road.

I am thrilled to have come across your site! Flying is my favored mode of transport, but I’m planning a road trip from Seattle to Fairbanks (and back!) for next summer. Never having been much for the road trip, with two boys and two dogs, I am a tad apprehensive and it is still over a year away. Looking forward to your trip and seeing how it is done!

That sounds awesome Tammi! We spent some time in the Pacific Northwest last summer (RV) and loved every bit of it. Alaska would be icing on the cake. Look forward to having you along for our rides. :)
