Friday Five: Road Trips

My husband and I just returned (on Wednesday night) from a long road trip up the middle USA to Canada, going through various national parks, and on to the Puget Sound of Washington State. This brought back memories of family road trips with my children and when I was a child, so the idea of today's Friday Five arose.

Tell us about five road trips--in your childhood, in your family, in your recent past, with friends, and/or hoped-for-places-to-drive-to. Don't forget the one that stands out as the BEST or as the worst time.

If you play, leave a comment with a link so we can see where you've been. Here's the details on how to make a link.


  1. Here's where I played. Thanks for the road trip to memory lane!

  3. Thanks Jan.

    I photoblogged (in random order) here

  4. thanks for this one, Jan! I played here!

  5. I have traveled.

  6. I finally am back at the Friday Five! And I blogged about trips here.

    I'm loving reading about other people's trips--travel writing is one of my favourite genres--but perhaps I should get back to work...?

  7. I'm back and playing after a way-too-long break. My thoughts on my favorite trips are here.

  8. another one I'll probably delete in a day or 2, but at least I tripped out a little today--thanks, Jan!

  9. I hope I still have time to do this one!

    and Jan, tell me where you got your cool graphic.

  10. i finally got my post finished and it's here!

  11. It's been a busy, busy day, but I'll be pack to post and visit you all. What fun stories I've already read! Thanks for playing.

    The image was found on Google Image search.

  12. I must be the last one to do this--here are a few road trips.

  13. I tried to sum up many road trips here

  14. Our family loved road trips (though we kids took a while to appreciate them).

    - Vicksburg; my grandmother's home
    - New England
    *Saw Colonial Williamsburg
    *Waved at the Amish in Pennsylvania
    * Saw the liberty bell
    - Midwest
    *South Dakota Badlands
    *Mt Rushmore
    * Yellowstone
    - St Augustine
    - Fort Walton Beach

    Thanks for the chance to walk down memory lane. We live it a big world. I feel blessed for the chance to have seen so much of it!
