i assume that cross country, to and fro', would probably count as a long road trip ~ as a kid we did it a few times….one of the funnest road trips, however, was an unexpected jaunt across Colorado in a tall mini van. ha! tall is the only way i can describe the van. it wasn't a low riding wide van like i had been accustomed to, but rather an astro, or something like that. i just remember it sat up high. the unexpected part of the trip was more a blunder on our part; we neglected to check closely on the details for our drive 'over to grand junction'….from denver! it was awesome and the crowd of us, 4 grown ups, a 3 year old, and an infant rather enjoyed the thrill of lightening storms and some serious grades. woo hoo. takes the cake over any college roadies and those sort of adventures. and yes, there were some of those!
