This year, for Spring Break, a friend and I decided to travel to the Big Easy for a week. Since we are broke college students, we made the decision to drive down instead of fly. We knew that that trip down and then back was going to be a long one since we go to school in northern Pennsylvania, but we were committed to driving so we sucked it up and just went for it.
I've been on long car trips before, but they were few and far between. Honestly, I had no expectation for what the drive was going to be like.
