Tess is done with school this Friday. Some of you are already on break. Others still have a few weeks to go. But one thing is clear: We’ve all got summer on the brain. And where there’s summer, there’s vacationing and road-tripping and wondering how the hell you’re going to eat well along the way.
I’ve got answers. Or ideas, anyway. For the last two summers, I’ve chronicled our road trips with daily reports about the varied and sometimes wacky ways we manage to keep it real on the road. We’ll be doing it again this summer, but not until late July. So, in the meantime, I’m rounding up those reports, as well as other posts and articles I’ve written about packing food for travel and navigating restaurants:
