Have you ever taken a road trip?
I’ve taken a few in my life, but the most memorable was in May 2001 when my husband and I drove from Illinois to California. It was a 10-day trip that started by heading north-east through lower Michigan, across the U.P., through Minnesota, South Dakota, south through Wyoming and Colorado. We then crossed through Four Corners, stopped by the Grand Canyon, spent a night in Las Vegas, and then made our way into L.A. and up to Ventura County at Point Mugu Naval Air Station.
We did all this in a pickup truck with a homemade, wooden truck cap on the back. I need to dig out those photos…
Anyhow, road trips can be a lot of fun, but we spend so much time in our cars going back and forth to the grocery store, school pick-up lines, sporting events, to and from work, and those simple, ordinary trips are a huge part of our lives. Combine that with milestones like driving to your daughter’s wedding reception, bringing home a new baby, or your teenager’s first solo drive, and you have the makings of an “Every Day Road Trip” – and Cooper Tire wants to celebrate these moments by picking up the tab for your gas.
