What do you wear for a COVID-avoiding road trip to visit grandkids (and their parents)? This is one time I’m willing to give leggings-almost-as-pants a pass, since the only humans to see it will be my hubby and a potential passerby at a rest stop. Also, these are very substantial (Lysette, from a friend’s garage sale) and opaque; more like upscale running tights than the usual leggings. Anyway...having a longish top (this one was a discontinued sample from Cabi, bought at a clothing swap) makes it all feel A-OK to me. A baseball cap with texture takes care of departure day hair issues, and white sneakers (Cole Haan, via 6 PM) are safe for driving and advisable for the aforementioned rest stops. 😉 Prescription sunglasses are imperative for driving; these are matte black aviators from Ray Ban. A watch J Crew for Timex, from eBay) and water bottle (this is a really nice one gifted by my friends at Mohawk) are great add-ones, as are the face masks and hand sanitizer that will be in heavy rotation. What do you like to wear when you hit the road for social-distanced adventure?

Road tripping is definitely an affordable (and currently, safer) way to travel. We’ve limited our exposure and expense by eating out (outdoors) only once a day, staying in Marriott properties with breakfast provided (mostly “grab and go”), and packing a cooler with fruit, veggies, hummus, cheese and crackers, and Trader Joe’s snacks for evening noshing. Oh yeah, we brought wine, too. 😉
