It’s that wonderful time of year when Thanksgiving and Christmas come together filled with bountiful feasts that expand your waistline and where wonderful memories with friends and family are made. It’s also the time when we rack up not just calories, but miles on our vehicles!
Okay, I might be dating myself here, but whether your road trips are quiet and mundane or similar to that of the Griswold’s adventure, from the movie, “National Lampoons Vacation”, I must say that there is no better vehicle to do it in comfort and style as in the 2018 Toyota Sequoia. And not just the Toyota Sequoia, but also the crown jewel of the Sequoia line, the Platinum edition!
It’s truly a first class commuting experience, where you and your family are enveloped in ultimate comfort. But, before diving into this magnificent vehicle, I’ll start with our holiday journey for Thanksgiving.
My family and I live in Southern California. Our family consists of four, my husband and two wonderful children, ages eight and ten. To say riding in a car for seven to eight hours is hard is an understatement.
Our quest this holiday season was to drive to Northern California, something of 450 miles through Los Angeles and up the I-5 freeway. Usually our drive consists of at least two to three stops, taking around seven or eight hours until the final destination is reached. Often times mom and dad arrive with frayed nerves and a bit of PTSD from the kids arguing or fighting over toys or who get’s what device.
But this year our drive up north was welcomingly different! Our usual road-tripping gauntlet did not rear its ugly head. Instead, we were graciously offered the opportunity to hit the road to visit my parents in the 2018 Toyota Sequoia.
