Here’s a great camping tip! Allow time on every camping outing to spend a day just road tripping. Maybe you pick a final destination, but don’t set a schedule or a route to get there. Just go … and enjoy what comes along the way.
The 50 Campfires team did just that on the Field Trip: Bourbon Trail. On the final day of their trip, they knew they had to get from their last campsite near Louisville, Kentucky to a hotel near the airport in Nashville, Tennessee. When they arrived didn’t matter that much.
So they set out in the Nissan Armada to see what they could see along the way. As usual, this unscheduled, unplanned portion of the trip turned up the most surprising discoveries and meaningful memories of the entire adventure.
