Taking a trip tomorrow

Rose Pekelnicky

Tomorrow I am going to visit my youngest son and his family. I haven't seen them for 6 months. He and his wife both work from home now and they have 2 preschool kids. Its 200 miles and I will drive there. I'm a little nervous about the drive because I haven't been going out much lately but I am so looking forward to seeing them all and their brand new house. I will not stop anyplace along the way

Enjoy! On a drive of that length I always pack a snack and plenty of water. If you have to stop to gas up the car, wear your mask if anyone else is nearby and use lots of hand sanitizer afterward.

I would worry more about the people you and your family have come in contact with than anyone that you would meet on the trip to and from. Enjoy your visit but stay masked except when you are in your car as much as possible.

You should be okay at 200 miles. That can be driven in a few hours. Long trips require a place to sleep overnight and that becomes the major problem. If you are concerned about food along the way, take along nonperishable snacks to munch on along the way. And carry drinking water/liquids. On long trips, its a good idea to have a couple of days worth of drinking water with you.

Do have a plan in case of auto breakdown.

Wishing you a joyous trip. Don't forget the camera.

You'll be FINE! Think of the reward awaiting at the end of your drive. Are you going to tell us -- show us -- what new masterpiece you are bringing them?

Enjoy your visit. You should be fine. We made a trip back to see family. We ate in the car and only stopped for gas and potty breaks. I made homemade wet wipes out of paper towels and hand sanitizer. We cleaned our hands as we got back in the car. My family was more afraid of us as we were coming from a hot spot. We sat outside when we met with them. We were distanced and didn't touch any of their stuff. We mainly stay home so not a lot of outside contact.

I always enjoy listening to talk radio on long road trips. This should be fun! Enjoy your visit!
