Hi! My name is Kristi (aka the Trippy Tripster) and I started this website because I love planning (and taking) road trips and I want to help you! I have been taking my family on road trips 2-3 times a year since 2002 and we've never been on the same one twice!
I have learned a ton of stuff - most of it the hard way - that I'd like to share with others who either go on road trips all the time or have only thought about it and just don't know where to start.
I love to find alternative, scenic routes, off the beaten path gems, local eateries, and great places to stay. Sometimes I'm daring, and sometimes I go with the known entity, but as everyone knows, road trips are always full of surprises. My kids remember those the best! I'd like to help you plan your next road trip adventure, personalizing it just for you based on your personal preferences.
Road trips can be anything from a half-day to several weeks. It all depends on how much time you have. They can start and end at your home, or you can fly in somewhere and cut down on Interstate time.
