It was a cool fall morning as we set off on our 2-week road trip from California to Alabama for the 2018 World Food Championships. We learned a lot about this road trip last year and decided to stretch our first leg from California to Alabama to 4 days instead of 3 days. By doing this: 1) We didn’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn to get back on the road. 2) We were able to take advantage of the free breakfast at the Hilton Hotel properties where we stayed. 3) We were able to get to our daily destination at a reasonable hour so we could unpack the car and have a relaxing dinner. 4) We were able to get a good night’s rest before the next day of driving.
