How To Plan a Road Trip

Decide on your ultimate destination.

Put stickers on the map for things you want to see.

Decide which stickers are close to a reasonable route.

Decide which exceptions and detours must be made.

Discuss planning ahead versus winging it.

Discuss making reservations versus showing up and hunting for a place to stay.

Discuss short drives with time for sightseeing, or 8 hour drives with time for dinner, versus 15 hour drives where you get in at midnight and still have to make camp.

Make reservations.

Note: the person who does the planning gets the last word.

From this post, I am making the assumption that you were the one with the last word.
Oh, I hope so!
