10 Simple Ways to Make Your Road Trip More Enjoyable

Ahh. It’s almost summer time. Time to hit the road!

Ever since I was old enough to remember, I have always wanted to take a trip on Route 66 across America. This ever-wanting to wander has been instilled in me due to lots and lots of family vacations from a very young age — most involving lots of driving.

The first big road trip that I can recall was when I was 4 years old. I vaguely remember it, but I do remember that we went to a Native American reservation in Oklahoma, which to this day I would like to return to. This trip was to visit family in Phoenix, Arizona, and to see the Grand Canyon. The four of us in my direct family rode in my mother’s maroon 1989 Ford Taurus with maroon-suede seats. Awesome. And, very hot. Somehow, my father managed to fit TWO(!!) 6 foot tall stand-ups in the car: Bettie Boop as a carhop and John Wayne. Of course.

Out on your own? Protect your stuff!

“Woohoo! We’re at college!”

I moved out older than most people — at 25. I did this because I was a.) too cheap, b.) never home anyway and that just did not make much sense to me, and c.) I went through a very tragic event and had too much anxiety to be alone. Enough of the sob story.

However, in May 2015, I found myself in a nice apartment in Murphysboro. It’s an older building, which is exactly what I was looking for. But, because it is an older building, the wiring is probably older, the roof wouldn’t hurt to be replaced, could use to be pin-tucked (a.k.a. some brickwork), and my appliances run on natural gas. I have a lot of stuff. A lot of expensive stuff.
