Best Road Trip Ever | One To Nothin'

Best Road Trip Ever

By now you've probably heard me talk about my favorite Plucky Picaroon & bloggy BFF, Sarah, but did you know that we have our own TV show? Yea, it's kind of a big deal comedy about an adorable, quirky chick living with three bros in California. The main character, Sarah, has her own theme song (Who's that girrrrrl? It's SARAH!) and a best friend, me. Here's a little photo of us on set.
So now that you know a little more about us, Sarah's going to teach you all how to have the best time ever on a road trip while I'm traveling cross-country. Take it way, my friend!


Can you believe our MacKensie G.? Hitching her wagon to a star and setting out into The Great Unknown, the Wild Blue Yonder, the Wild Wild West.... /le sigh... What a totally excellent adventure! Even if we disregard the fact that when this road trip is over, she'll be living in California (jealous), road trips are still the best of the best of the best when it comes to adventures.

Important Tips to Make Your Next Road Trip the 
Best.Time.Ever.

{::} First and foremost, of course, you need great music! If you're a dweeb like me, this means compiling a special playlist centered entirely around your Destination to act as a soundtrack for said road trip. For Mary Mack, this playlist would definitely include the following:


| 1. Should've Been a Cowboy :: Toby Keith |  2. California Dreamin' :: The Mamas & The Papas |
|  3. Wild Wild West :: Will Smith   |   4. California Girls :: The Beach Boys  |
|  5. California Gurls :: Katy Perry   |   6. California Love :: 2 Pac  |
|  7. Hotel California :: Eagles   |   8. California Girls :: Gretchen Wilson  |

{::} Next Up -- Do Some Research
  • Is the world's biggest ball of yarn a quick 20 minute detour off of the interstate? 
  • The hometown of your favorite movie star could be on your way from Point A to Point B! Look it up!
  • History nerds like me will be wowed by traveling at least part of the way on a classic highway [think Route 66].
  • Have you never seen The Mountains, The Ocean, The Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, or some other epic landmark? One or more of these things could be merely an Exit Sign away!
Knowing what you love is the most important thing for great road trip research. For example, I love old music so stopping at Graceland to visit with Elvis's ghost would be so cool for me, but it's really whatever works best for you! Be creative!

{::} Go Original or Go Home
I'm a HUGE fan of doing things in particular places that you can't do somewhere else. Like stopping for lunch at a local diner or crab shack and ordering The Famous ______. Forget Burger King and IHOP. Find an Ed's Grill or The First Chinese Restaurant in the Region or [my favorite] the oldest brewery around town. 
When you need to stop to pee, cruise past Speedways and BPs. Stop at Possum Trot Junction (← real place in Southern Indianaor Mike's Stop n' Go: Get Food & Gas Here. A much more authentic road trip experience & some of the best souvenirs!

{::} MOST IMPORTANTLY
TAKE PICTURES OF EVERYTHING.
I mean, ev.er.ee.thang.

If you haven't been on a road trip lately, plan one. I'm game! Where are we headed?! Gas prices can suck it. You can't put a price tag on the memories, the fun, and the it's-okay-if-I-eat-an-entire-bag-of-Cheetos-and-6-candy-bars-and-2-giant-slushies-before-Noon-because-I'm-on-a-road-trip experience!

Bon voyage, MacKensie G.! And get your couch ready for some slumber party fun. This girl is itchin' for a good road trip!!!
(erp, why isn't 'road trip' one word again??)
