#Giveaway $100 Gift Card: Travel Safely This Season With Pilot & Flying J Travel Centers (Holiday Guide)

Product Received

When preparing for your travel over this holiday season, there can be a lot of planning to be done. I know that going over the checklists, over and over again, can be quite stressful. From the bags, making sure that you have everything that you will be needing in order to ensure that you do not forget anything. To the car maintenance, which is needed so that you can avoid any unexpected incidents due to engine or tire issues on the road. Aside from these things, there is also the planning of your trip. With having a husband who was a truck driver and drove cross country for several years, the road trips tend to be very planned out. My husband is not one who will stop unless it is part of his planning, so those moments when someone says they have to use the restroom, or that they are hungry, can be frustrating. But also having a plan in place, one that he will share with the entire family before leaving, so that everyone knows when we will be stopping and where we will be stopping, makes the trips a lot less stressful. Being a former truck driver, my husband finds that the Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers, are places we can mark on our maps for travel, that are great for families. Making them the stop where we can not only gas up, but we can also use the restrooms, and get the family fed as well as stock up on snacks and drinks to last until we get to the next Pilot or Flying J stop on our itinerary! When we are traveling, the kids know that when they see the signs showing that there is a Pilot or Flying J Travel Center ahead, they can prepare for our next stop, so there is not any of that asking when we will stop to eat or use the restrooms. We also appreciate that we can find those restaurants, that are favorites of the family and take a break from the road while eating and stretching our legs. Aside from the basic necessities that we utilize when we go to the Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers, we also know that say if there is a unexpected uh oh, like someone gets car sick, we know that there are showers available, so we do not have to wait until we reach the hotel or our destination to get fully cleaned up. We can also take full advantage of the stores that they have, by purchasing games, movies, electronics, batteries, as well as souvenirs to mark our trip! In all, we know that when we are planning out our trips, aside from the attractions we might stop to look at, we can look forward to the stops that we will be making at the Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers on our route! So this year, while you are planning for your own family road trips, add the Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers to your families itinerary so that you can have a set plan when on the road, by heading over to the Pilot Flying J site and planning your trip out by location, today! Also when you head on over to the Pilot Flying J site, you can check ahead of time on gas prices, so you are well prepared while taking your next road trip with the family! Well to help with the travel this holiday season, the wonderful people from Pilot Flying J, would like to give one of my amazing readers a $100 gift card  along with a Travel Guide that can be used at any one of their travel centers!
