Back roads travel gets you in front of better views

Hocking Hills area on Google MapsIn this short video, Jessi talks about how we like to travel back roads whenever possible. We’ve talked before about how important it is to find your best role, whether that’s as the pilot or navigator. (Jessi is definitely the better navigator, while Ari is more comfortable as the pilot.)

We’re putting a lot more trips under our belt lately and our preferred style of travel is to get away from the Interstate highway system. It’s a lot less stressful and more satisfying. So break out whatever navigation tool works for you. Then plot your way on some of the state highways and county roads. You’ll soon discover what you’ve been missing!

  1. We live to use the National Geographic Atlas because it has MANY points of interest marked that you might never know about otherwise.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion Patti!
      Since you always find such neat places to see, I’ll have to check this one out. I tend to stick with the Rand McNally Michigan Atlas and Gazetteer, but I’ve discovered the newer “fancier” ones don’t contain all the information the older ones did, like the rustic forest campgrounds we like so well. I’ve found myself carrying both an old and new one to have all the information I need!

      Enjoy your travels!
