Reason for this Goal: There is nothing like an auto adventure driving vacation, with family, to create lasting memories. A vacation in which you drive instead of fly is also much less expensive, which is especially important in your earlier years.
Tips to planning and enjoying a driving vacation or auto adventure:
Suggested Goal(s): Plan and take a 1-week auto adventure driving vacation.
Your Outrageous Goal: Drive across your entire country in a single vacation.
When you ask children later in life about their most memorable times growing up, it is likely that your auto adenture driving vacation(s) together will rank near the top.
In 2006 and 2007, our family drove across Canada—first, out West, to Victoria, British Colombia; and then, out East, to Newfoundland. We visited many of the locations on the Canada-Opoly board game. We traveled with Kathy’s parents, Joe and Aurella, across our great country, spending real quality time together as a family, while exploring and seeing our vast country firsthand. It is a trip that we will always cherish, and one that I hope we repeat again some year, perhaps when our children have children of their own. I wrote out a complete travel journal of our entire trip, in Microsoft word, with embedded pictures, which may end up in a blog someday.
Some of the sites we’ve visited across Canada, as featured in the Canada-Opoly game board, included:
We stayed in a wide range of accommodations, including hotels, inns, bed and breakfasts, the West Edmonton mall, and a ranch; and we even slept in our van on one occasion—when we had a crazy experience by running out of gas late one night.
Decide what auto adventure driving vacation you could take, and make some great family memories you’ll cherish forever. Play games along the way!
