I have always been enthusiastic about travel: domestic, international, a fun road trip, you name it. As long as it’s not on a boat (did I mentioned that I saw Titanic in theaters over 20 times? Y’all aren’t getting me on a boat), I am here for it. This year, I had at least four trips planned with my kid between March and October, and we managed to complete exactly one of those before the virus brought our freewheeling lifestyle to a halt.
Like a lot of people, I’ve felt the itch to get out of my house and go somewhere besides the grocery store. But like a lot of people, I am scared of catching the virus and am fully unwilling to put my son in a situation where he could get sick. So we’ve been spending a lot of time at home, occasionally seeing friends from a distance and having a lot of video chats instead.
In late July, I felt particularly itchy to get out. A friend took a beach trip and reported that it was totally possible to be safe while doing so, which surprised me. After pressing him for more details, I started to hatch a plan: what if I could take my kid on a road trip, meet up with another friend and her kids, and … everything could work out OK?
Before diving in, it’s worth mentioning two things: I am a pretty anxious person, and I am a relentless planner.
