This could be the year of the family road trip. The summer of 2009 may go down in history as the summer we rediscovered the open road as the solution for the conflicting need of a much needed break coupled with the lack of ability to spend on a foreign vacation destination; the need for frugality versus the promise of rejuvenation. With fuel prices being the lowest in 4 years, and vacation budgets being a non-factor in a lot of Americans minds right now, the stage is set for summer family road trips to be the boon.

    • A Girl and Her Thumb

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

    • Home and Away

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working.
