Caffeinated Convo: What is Your Favorite Travel Music?

Finally! Another Caffeinated Convo! Did you miss me? *wink, wink* If you haven’t guessed, my family is still. homeless. *Sigh…* But, the good news is, we just got final approval yesterday for the loan on our house! As of May 5, I might–just might–be able to get back into my regular schedule! *crosses fingers and wishes on a star* Our family has been traveling all over the country, as we’ve been patiently (or not-so-patiently) awaiting the day we would move in to our new home. We’ve visited exciting destinations like: Tahlequah, Oklahoma (Capital of the Cherokee Nation!); Kannapolis, North Carolina (birthplace of Dale Earnhardt Sr.–and our new home! *cartwheel*); Camden, Delaware (neighbor to the Dover NASCAR track!); Yardley, Pennsylvania (home of my sister and a really good Starbucks!); and Lititz, Pennsylvania (our home-away-from-home, and where Wilbur Chocolate and Tomato Pie Cafe are located–enough said!) Aren’t you jealous you’re not on this road-trip with us? (Actually…don’t answer that. *winkie face*)

Sooo, all this traveling has included lots of music. Which brings me to this week’s question:

Caffeinated Convo: What’s Your Favorite Road Trip Game?

Here we are! Another week, another convo. And before you ask, NO, this column hasn’t changed to Wednesday’s. But we lost internet connection almost a week ago and have been in the car for two straight days. (Insert fanny-fatigue here.) Hoping I can get things back on track by next week! *wink, wink*

Having said that, let’s get to this week’s question!

What’s your favorite road trip game?

Can you guess what inspired this question? (Ha!) Seventeen hours in a car encouraged quite a few game ideas to help pass the time. Our travels through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma wouldn’t have been the same without some fun! For our family, car-game-excitement means either the License Plate game or the Going on a Picnic game. The former is a good “long-haul” game, since we choose to combine the plates we see over the entire trip, and not just by the day. And the latter is challenging mentally and helps keep us all awake! (Which in turns helps keep the driver awake, right? Right.)

What about you? Do you have a favorite game you play on road trips? Have a different twist to an old favorite you’d like to share? Please leave a comment below and let’s talk!
