traverse-interiorDo you cringe at the thought of three hours stuck in a car? Could you see yourself signing on for six states and a 30 hour road trip with the whole family? There really isn’t anything to fear, in fact there is far more fun to be had than you may imagine.

When Chevy invited my family to make the trek from Maryland down to the Traveling Mom Retreat at Disney Word in the 2013 Traverse, I’ll admit I had second thoughts. Okay I had third, fourth and fifth thoughts too. Though my family is well-traveled, I wasn’t convinced that my sanity would survive the journey.
