We have our trusty mini-van, Charles. (Yes, we name things in this family.) But, let's say you need a bigger vehicle for a road trip. Did you know you could rent someone's car? Turo is just that! You can forego the big rental companies and rent privately! You can meet up with the owner or arrange a drop-off. Think Uber, but for rental cars. Like Air B&B. You can even list your car for extra cash! INCREDIBLE.
When we're home for too long, we get antsy. There's nothing quite like getting in the car, picking somewhere to go, and cranking up your favorite tunes. Life is an adventure and this country has some beautiful treasures.
When I was pregnant with Oliver, we drove out to California, up Highway 1, and to Oregon where we camped for a week. I would love to do that with the kids and hit up San Francisco, since we didn't last time. Who knows? Maybe we fly and then rent through Turo when we're there!
Now to the fun part...MUSIC!!! Good music makes road trips way more fun, right? So I'm going to give you an idea of what our road music looks like. And, no. We don't listen to ourselves!

You guys...I could literally go on and on and on. I love me some good playlists. I didn't even touch 80s or 90s music. Or the songs the kids like. Or Christmas!!!
So, what trip are you going to plan? Where will the open road take you? Why not start planning?
