Today is probably a good day to get things done. A trip to a retail store will start the process of building two automotive safety kits that include first aid materials. Automotive safety kits are probably a reflection of good planning. Actually having to use a care safety kit would be unfortunate. After returning from the retail store, the next step in the traveling process will involve packing clothing for the trip. Two entire days during the trip will involve driving. The rest of the time during the trip will involve celebrating Thanksgiving and talking to family members. Traveling between Colorado Springs, Colorado and Kansas City, Kansas takes about a day.
Planning family trips back to Kansas City, Kansas takes time. Family trips normally happen during the summer wedding season, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. On average, the entire family only gets together only a few times a year. Education provides the single greatest equalizing factor contributing to realizing the American Dream. At the same time, highly specialized education programs require people to move around the United States of America for employment. The entire family rarely follows one family member. Fragmentation results from the current educate then disperse pattern.
Traveling does provide a momentary change in daily activities. Riding in an automobile provides the opportunity to listen to radio programming. Both news talk radio and sports talk radio are frequently available during a trip. Increasingly finding a quality radio signal is becoming more difficult between Colorado and Kansas City, Kansas. Satellite radio solves the reception problem in exchange for a monthly fee. Automobile manufacturers build the vast majority of vehicles without the capacity for satellite radio. Special portable units provide satellite radio anywhere at anytime.
This particular road trip will probably require at least one audio book. Finding a high quality audio book that will be acceptable for the whole family is challenging. Most of the world of highly technical writing will never end up in audio book format. The amount of fiction available in audio book format is staggering. Being able to select one or two audio books from the vast catalog requires targeted informed searching.
