Reunion Road Trip – Part deux

We truly enjoyed our time at the Family Reunion…

And after our fantastic time in Charlotte, we got on the road and headed home!  It felt faster, although wasn’t really that different in terms of time, we just stopped for a shorter overnight.

There were two highlights for me 1) getting to see my friend and her family on our overnight stop (boy do I wish we had more time) and 2) the Pecan Nut bar we got during a special stop when my husband passed Horne’s Restaurant — a one of a kind store from his childhood road trips — passing through Port Royal, Virginia.

We continued our affinity for Dollar Tree and Chick Fil-A.  I think Dollar Tree is the worlds best kept road trip secret.  You have the chance to stop, go to the bathroom (usually its a reasonable one), and purchase snacks or water very reasonably.  It’s also a very good distraction – next time we road trip I will add it to our scavenger hunt!

I do have to say that the activity I enjoyed the most was our Rest Stop Scavenger Hunt.  Each time we stopped (and that is at least once per five hours – of a 30 hour trip) we had to find something on the scavenger hunt.  It took us the entire trip to and from the Reunion, but we finally crossed off the very last item… the Road Atlas.  For anyone born before the iPhone, you know what I mean.  Those born “post iPhone” haven’t had to read, much less navigate by the Atlas.  It was quite disappointing when I asked at WaWa if they had an Atlas and the answer was, “what is that?”

The last leg is always the most difficult as evidenced by my face and my Little Mama’s as we brought it home…
