A Map and a Full Tank of Gas #MFRWAuthor

Welcome to Week 15 of the MFRW 52-week challenge. The topic is "Planning a trip itinerary: detailed or fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants."

Travel with an infant takes a certain amount of planning. Not everyone realizes that depending on the length of time away from home, travel with an elderly person may require even more, if only to ensure subsequent medications on hand. Then there is the wheelchair and the various medical equipment needed for the taking of daily vitals.

I think the best trip starts with a plan, but is flexible enough to accommodate changes. Heavy rain and thunder storms can throw the detailed itinerary of a camping trip bicycling along a canal into a cocked hat.

But just getting into a car and driving isn't practical. At least give me a list of a few things to do when I get there. When traveling to a new area, especially a large city or foreign country, I'd like to have a local resident to guide me around. And while I don't want a tightly scheduled, race through the itinerary, a plan with some built in slack would be nice.

~till next time, Helen
