Traditions just happen. All it takes is stopping at the same place twice on a trip somewhere, or cooking something twice for different trips. I made chocolate chip cookies for a road trip once and now

H.M. - can I ask 'where' in North Dakota?  See any sunflowers?  What did you think? I lived near Minot 3 years and then near Grand Forks for almost 5 years.   I LOVED that state - summer and winter.

Nancy, my son Kyle went to college at UND in Grand Forks. He was an Aviation Management major. I remember seeing the fields of sunflowers and chuckling. When I was on the farm in Iowa, sunflowers were a farmers enemy and my Dad insisted we pull them out everytime we saw one. And here were FIELDS of them. lol

Last summer we went to North Dakota for a wedding.  Before we left I made a couple of sandwiches, packed some snacks and fruit, and a whole case of bottled water.  My husband turned up his nose at the ham sandwiches, until HE got hungry lol.  Saved us a lot of time we would've spent looking for someplace to eat.  Don't think he'll make such a fuss next time.  Maybe for the next trip I'll have to bake some cookies too.

Years ago we would join hubby's parents at their cottage every summer & since it was about a 3 hr. drive, I would make sandwiches (on burger buns because they were easier for the kids to handle in the car), have drinks, homemade cookies & grapes.  One year when the kids were in high school, hubby suggested no sandwiches (well I made tuna salad to have at the cottage in the cooler), there was an accident & construction & after 2 hr. in the car we were less than 1/2 way there, the boys fell asleep & hubby said he was starving (I had the car loaded up & we left about 5 min. after he got home from work so he did not eat  anything before we left) I pulled out tuna salad & burger buns(I bought them on sale & packed them for burgers at the cottage)& made him a couple sandwiches. He never suggested no sandwiches again. Smile  I even take a bottle of water or juice (I refill my bottles) in the car when I shop because I go to 3 or 5 stores in one trip & I have something to sip on between stores. Saves money, gas & time.

lol lol  Verlee --- I was in the spectacular state of N D so many years ago (I left in Feb. 1993) I bet Kyle was too young to be in a dorm where I could take him cookies. lol lol

While I was there there were sometimes demonstrations at the main gate by people against the military and especially the nuclear missiles.  I would take soda and cookies to those people and tell them I was as much against war as they were, that I loved the military which prevented that.

Road trips are fun; but have not been on one for some time.  Whenever we would go, I would take along cookies.  One time, we were caught up in a traffic jam......accident happened way up the road, and we were there it seemed forever.  Our grown daughter was with us, and she hopped out of the car.  She retrieved the cookies, and went around passing them out to the people in the cars near us.  The people were so thankful.  So, now when she goes on a road trip, she also takes a big container of cookies with her!

Road tripa are indeed fun. Even if you only visit  something in your own state.
There is always lots to see in your own state.

Angela - oh, how I agree!  I live a small. quiet life and I can't see how I can cut back on trips but I just have to do that.

Darla - thanks, that's a great story.  God bless your generous daughter.

When we were kids and went anywhere in the car my mother always packed a "survival kit" of snacks and drinks for us.  I still do.  No matter where we go there's always something to eat in the car.

Sorry, Nancy, just found this thread again.  The wedding was in Valley City, about 90 minutes west of Fargo.  It was hot but not as humid as here(Illinois).  And, yes, there were lots of sunflowers although some of the fields were still flooded.    We only stayed there one night since we wanted to stop in Minnesota on the way home.  But it was nice to see something else for a change.
