In the summer between 5th and 6th grade my family decided to take a trip cross country. We packed everything into our mini van and the tiny pop-up camper it was pulling and spent a month driving around the country stopping at national parks and having the time of our life! It really was one of the best things I’ve ever done. And ever since then I’ve wanted to do it again. And again. And again. I think I could happily road trip every summer. Of course I work during the summer and I don’t have a car that would pull a camper (I know I could tent it, but the camper part was so cool.) But someday I really have to do it again.
Here is me (second from the left) and a bunch of my cousins at the Grand Canyon (obviously) during that road trip.
