1700 miles in two days….

29 Jun

Today is the big day. Finally!!!!

Usually on long road trips we end up eating way to much fast food. And we all end up feeling like the food we have consumed: crap. So this time, I am being smart, and packing healthy, yummy things. Fresh fruit and bread. Nuts. Things of that nature.

I noticed last time we made this journey that there were a lot little farmer’s market type vendors at the small towns we stopped at to rest. I plan on taking full advantage of them. We can snack on fresh sugar snap peas, peaches, cherries and whatever other tasty things we happen to come across.

There will be plenty of pictures and stories to post when I get back. (Or maybe en-route) 30+ hours in the car should provide good material.

    We’ll be doing a freakishly similar drive this summer and I was just thinking about the food we’d pack! Can’t wait to see your posts.

    We’re doing a roadtrip soon too- maybe I will blog about the healthier food options I will pack! We end up getting fast food sometimes on trips too. It’s hard to avoid it- but I think we can this time 🙂

    This road trip looks amazing. I am a huge road trip fan despite not driving! My GF usually does it all as she is weirdly happy sitting behind the wheel and refuses to stop en route usually too!
    Can’t wait to here all about the trip. Enjoy x
