For about 15 years in a row while I was growing up, every Thanksgiving my Dad would load us in the car and drive 12 hours. We'd spend the weekend with cousins, aunts, uncles, & grandparents. On Sunday we'd drive back home 12 hours.
This year I'm doing it for the first time (but it won't become a habit). By the time my Dad was my age, we weren't doing it anymore.
