Have you ever been on a long road trip only to wonder if you’re living in fast food nation? You might think of making a TripTik with AAA. But what you really should think about is The Eat Well Guide where you can make a local food centric trip plan that will make your journey so much more pleasurable.
You pick the types of establishments you’re interested in – farms, restaurants, stores etc. Then can generate a printable guide.
Recently embarking on a roadtrip, I remembered to generate a list of great eateries from San Francisco to Los Angeles.
How did the Eat Well Guide fare?
Pretty sweet, although it needs help to suggest more local food places.
If you have several Interstate highway systems to choose from, you may need to game the system by choosing start and finish cities on the particular highway you’ll be driving (in my case highway 101) vs. the guide showing you the shortest route (highway 5).
PS – One of my favorite recent discoveries on I5 in California is the family farm fruit stand at the Westley exit. In peach season be sure to stop there.
And if you’re on highway 80 through Iowa, screech off at Newton to go to Maytag Blue Cheese!
You’ll find this all soon in the Eat Well Guide as I happily start to get involved!
