Road Trip for Roadtrip!
20ish Parks, 20ish Days
Yes, I did. Really. I rented a car. I planned my route. I booked motels. Just like in my board game Roadtrip!, I plan to see as much as I can as fast as I can. Our national treasures - both natural and man-made - await! You can follow along here as I continue to plan, as I visit sites, and as I blog. Stop back by frequently for all the fun!

Playing Roadtrip! on my Road Trip
Yup, I'm playing the same road trip with my game while I'm traveling. Using the rules for scalability, I've set out to play a custom long game of standard challenge with a custom home. I'm playing a turn a day every morning, and see how things unfold as I skirt along the highways.
Vehicle: Wayfarer Wagon (since I am actually in a car)
Passengers: Harvey, Helen, and Whiskers (picked to match road conditions)
Board Location: California
Happiness: Blissful (10)
Energy: Bushed (1)
We are almost home. Though the trip has shaped spectacularly, I cannot wait to get out of the car from Harvey, Helen, and (even) Whiskers. Three weeks on the road is enough! We'll be home tomorrow!
20 Destinations (custom long game), 3 Passengers (standard challenge), California Home (custom home location)
