This past weekend I spent over four hours in the car, to only drive about 90 miles. Traffic in New York City, especially in the summer, is absolutely horrific. I sincerely would rather drive 200 miles while moving freely than sit in the amount of traffic I do to visit my in-laws in Eastern Long Island.
While my day-to-day life does not require much driving, my weekends have always been stuck in my car. As a result, I have come up with a few techniques you can use on long road trips to occupy the time and your mind. Some of these are great with other people, and can be adjusted for kids, and some will be just fine while you’re alone. The trick is to modify for your audience.
I hope you gleaned some ideas to make your next road trip a little more bearable! Do you have any suggestions for keeping your time and mind occupied while traveling?
