Road trip with granddaughter

Payton is 11 years old now. With 11,000 miles of sidecar riding you could say she is experienced. We may make a few mods to her Wheelchair for this trip. With her Dad in Afghanistan our plans for a trip to the Ark Encounter were put on hold. We decided to go anyway. Just Payton and her grandfather.
If we loaded up in the van it would be just a trip. We talked about it and she wants to go in the sidecar. The trip will be 1,200 miles round trip. Latter today her and I will sit down and pick the day we are leaving , where we want to stay and the route. Payton has made it clear any motels must have a pool. You have to relax after a long days ride you know.
Payton is a detailed orientated child . She plans well so After I give her information she needs , she will do most of the planning. I know of a few great motels and will let her pick. One thing I do not want on the trip is bad surprises at a motel . This trip is going to be an Adventure for both of us.

Priceless, This sort of bonding is what is missing from today's society. Enjoy the companionship of the road with her, God bless and smooth sailing to you both. Glide-on bro.......
