my mom used to drive but can't since the stroke, I only have my learner's permit so I can't drive in the US, my dad however, LOVES to drive so it's no hardship on him to do the whole thing. When I young, for our family vacation we drove from Toronto, to California, up to British Columbia, back down to Vegas, and all over the USA and Western part of Canada - it was 6 weeks of driving (with short stops in between - like DisneyLand and Expo 86 and the Corn Palace and a couple of days in Vegas - stayed at Circus Circus for my birthday when it was actually a cool place to stay). It's one of the reasons why I like WDW and cruises - no more "driving" vacations, we actually stop and stay somewhere! I love my Tim Horton's here in Canada but I LOVE dunkin donuts in the US - I think it's so cool that you can add a flavour to your coffee for no charge and at some places you have a choice of 10-15 different flavours - not that it should really matter to me because now I almost always get blueberry flavour! (at Tim Horton's you can add a flabour shot for 50 cents and they only have a couple like vanilla or hazelnut - nothing good like blueberry, raspberry or coconut flavours).
