New Year’s Resolution – One Road Trip Per Month

year by pledging to use your Road Trip Planner at least once a month to explore your world near and far.

Before you object by declaring, “There’s no way I can afford a monthly adventure!”, bear in mind that many itineraries can be filled with free activities.
