Something that this Grand Family Adventure has taught me is that the road less traveled can lead to some amazing places.
Our travels through Tennessee led us to an unexpected location. A small town with lots of charm. Lynchburg, Tennessee might be known for it’s Jack Daniel’s distillery, but there is so much more to experience in this quaint small town.
Something to be considered for people wanting to take their life on the road, especially those of us with young children, is how will the holidays be celebrated. We are not a very religious family, but we do celebrate many traditional American holidays. In our decision to take our life on the road we still wanted to provide our children with the fun and excitement of celebrating holidays along with their birthdays. Although where we celebrate them and the ways in which we celebrate them will vary, it is great that we are still able to participate in them no matter where we happen to be. We planned on being with grandparents for Christmas, but hadn’t really considered where we would be or how we would celebrate other holidays. Birthdays on the road were also not something we had taken into consideration when planning this adventure. It is hard to plan for everything, however; birthdays are not too difficult. We just let the kids pick something unique, fun, and kid friendly in the area we plan to be for their birthday. I still make them a cake or special treat and we get them a small gift, something useful or something they need, but mainly it’s about the experience. Other holidays have taken a little more planning, but we always figure it out and so far it has always been fun and a new experience. So with a little planning and a big sense of adventure holidays on the road have been fun and exciting!
