Step 1

ROAD TRIP GETAWAYS simply start with when and where you want to go.

EVERYTHING ELSE falls naturally into place from there, so you can plan your trip, your way.

We try and make it easy for you! Just put your preparation on cruise control as you ease through the simple naturally sequence steps.

I think it’s fair to say that both Barb and I  are old hats at traveling thousands of road miles around the USA and CANADA, that started some time ago with two excited, rambunctious youngsters in the back seat and continue to this day with five grand kids in tow.
