    Planes, Trains, and Wienermobiles: travel by land, sea, and air

Whether by land, sea, or air, it’s all a part of the adventure. LAND Being a show with “Road Trip” in its name, we naturally spend a lot of time in cars. But cars […]

    The Longest Zip Line Canopy Tour in the World!

    A road trip is about much more than a destination. It’s about the overall journey –  where you go, what you experience, and how you get there. Toyota recently hosted me on a couple of incredible road trips where I got to experience fly fishing, off-roading, trap shooting and the longest zip line canopy tour in the WORLD! Better yet, I was provided with a 2017 Toyota Tacoma XSP to make the trips. Zip Lining […]

    Three days in Downtown Napa #DoNapa

    As an avid wine lover it is not shocking that Napa, California is one of my favorite destinations. I last visited the city in 2014 and spent the majority of my time in downtown Napa. One of the things I love about staying downtown is that many of the area winemakers have tasting rooms in the city and rather than driving from vineyard to vineyard to sample wines, I can simply walk. I also love that […]

    Clucking Awesome Chicken Man Music Video

    We at Midlife Road Trip believe in pursuing our passions. I have always been passionate about travel.

    Behind the Scenes at the Michel-Schlumberger Winery

      We went behind the scenes at the Michel-Schlumberger winery in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma, California where we learned a thing or two about organic farming from winemaker and vice president of production, Mike Brunson.

    Tailgating is one of our favorite fall activities. There’s something about meandering through large enthusiastic crowds with the smell of charcoal, lighter fluid, and grilled meats permeating the air that guarantees a good time. Even if you’re not particularly a fan of football, the experience is worthy of any bucket list.

    We met some incredible people, tasted some amazing food, and picked up some great tailgating tips before a college football game at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
