Heading out on an August road trip

*My brother and fellow BrooksLaichyear blogger, Pat Holden, will be traveling with us for these dates and as far as Atlanta. He’s an excellent minivan co-pilot. I also believe he’d be open to the idea of wearing a NASCAR style jumpsuit along the way if anyone is looking for sponsorship opportunities. Your ad would look great on the side of the Holden family minivan as well.
