When was the last time you went on a road trip? It’s one of my favorite ways to travel, especially with my mom. We’ve been doing it once or twice a year for the past 20 years. Whether we go out of state or just a few hours down the road, we always have fun. And while road trips generally fall into two general categories - the planned and the spontaneous - traveling with my mom is mostly a hybrid of the two. Three weeks ago we loaded her SUV and hit the road, ready for some planned excursions and whatever adventure would come our way.
