BEDA Day 29: Road Trip Part Two

We're still driving as I'm typing this and I may not get to my grandparents until after midnight so i have to type this on my phone before we get to the border because I won't have 3G in Canada. Cool story right? 

Continuing with the assumption that I'm an expert on road trips today's post is another key tip. You're going to be on the road for quite some time so make up a game or something silly to do or count along the way. For example for this trip up the east coast mum and I decided to count the number of towns between Virginia and Pennsylvania that ended in 'burg'. We counted fourteen.

Though they may be random these easy games or competitions can keep you occupied if you find yourself looking at the clock every few minutes. If you can't come up with an original game ispy or the liscense plate game are always safe bets. These don't only keep the passengers occupied butt they also keep the driver awake which is always good. 


  1. When we take long road trips we always play the alphabet games: car edition, so first you have to find a car on the road that's name or brand starts with an A and so on through the alphabet. (Although we usually skip Q)

  2. lol we always play the "i'm thinking game" it's like 20 questions only you can ask as many questions as you want until you guess it.
