The plan was for me and two other friends to fly into New York City on Tuesday and stay with a friend in Brooklyn for two nights. Then on Thursday morning, all four of us would take a rental car up to Wolfeboro. Things didn't go as planned.
Earlier this summer, I got a new teaching job that starts next year, and my college-age sister got laid off from her nanny job (with severance pay!). To celebrate both of our freedoms, we took a 10-day road trip from Oakland to Seattle and back.
I haven't taken a road trip in a while, and am thinking about driving to my friend's wedding in Texas this fall. Will it be cheaper than flying? Probably not. But seeing what's available on the road these days may be totally worth it.
