We decided now is the time for a summer road trip, so we packed up our seven-month-old and hit the road. Listen in to learn all about our Airstream road trip – why we did it, where we went, what we learned, and more!
Episode 56 | September 1, 2020
What’s new this week
I was ultimately against the idea of a road trip when my husband suggested that we take one. As the weeks passed and COVID wasn’t improving, I decided that he was right and now is the time to embark on an epic adventure. So, we loaded up our beloved Airstream and hit the road with a specific destination in sight.
On this episode, Corbin and I share our honest insight about the trip – what went right and what went so wrong – and chat all about our Airstream. Enjoy!

Planning a road trip? Check out Roadtrippers to help you plan your trip and stay organized! Also, you can save $5 on the premium version of the app with code BTR5QTP.
As we mentioned, we used Harvest Hosts to camp at private farms and wineries along our route. You can stay for free (!), but it’s best practice to spend $15-$20 per night at the on-site store (if there is one).
Road trip + baby must-haves:
- This backseat organizer with insulated cup holders to keep bottles, wipes, and toys handy
- A big cooler to stash lunch items and snacks (this one is a knock-off of a pricier brand and works great!)
- Non-toxic disinfecting wipes for bottles, pacifiers, and pump parts
- If you’re a breastfeeding mom, check out the Willow pump
- A few new toys to give your little one periodically
- The SlumberPod to instantly create a black-out “room” for your little one
- Portable phone charger or multiple power cords
- Lots of snacks of all different kinds
- Large water bottle that (ideally) keeps your water cold
- Hand sanitizer (!!!) we bought this large (non-toxic) one and kept it in the car and trailer
