The Road Is Life

“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.” – Jack Kerouac

Spring break road trips are different than summer ones.  They’re burlier for one thing.  Go north and the possibility of getting thwarted by a blizzard rises, head south and you could easily find yourself duking it out for a moldy motel room with tequila swilling co-eds.

How to get around it?  Plan like a road trip ninja.  With a little ingenuity and flexibility, spring road trips open the door to off-season adventure.  Here are some of the places we Toads aspire to reach this Spring:

Vancouver, BC

Big Sur

Montana

Red River Gorge

Savannah

Austin

Cape Cod

Taos

And when you’re packing, we suggest you follow this advice: Lay out your clothes and your money. Take half the clothes and twice the money.

  2. Bend is definitely at the top of the list, dear Hal … just didn’t want your guest room to get booked up before I could get there!
