Last summer, my family travelled cross-country to pick up our new 2017 Lexus IS 300 AWD at OpenRoad Lexus in Richmond, British Columbia.
My wife Karissa and I have done the trip before, back in 2014. That time, it was a mad rush — colliding schedules made it necessary to bomb across the country in five days. It was an adventure, compressed.
This time, our daughter Pepper will be with us. Having turned 7 in June, Peppy has done car trips, but nothing on this scale. We plan on roughly 12 days to drive from the West Coast to the Great Lakes, though the timeline changes as we progress.
One idea I have is to document the entire trip using a GoPro suction-cupped to the front windshield. It’s impractical to record all the driving, so instead I set it to take a photo every 10 seconds.
