Traveling on the I-5

A couple of weeks ago Stan (my husband) and I were on Interstate 5 on the section from Los Angeles to just south of Sacramento on the way to San Francisco. To say that this is a boring drive is an understatement.

Do you remember all the lush greenery of the crops that were growing there for all the grocery produce markets in the US and beyond? These fields are brown and desolate now, unfortunately, due to lack of water.

I don’t know about you, but Stan & I love Central California and enjoy the restaurants there. Their veggies and meat dishes are just a little bit tastier than elsewhere because these food products are grown in Central California and the big rigs get them to the chefs without delay. Let’s hope that the water starts to flow again and these farms located near the I-5 are back in business soon.

We play WannaBtruckers Board Game while away the time on the b-o-r-i-n-g parts of the I-5 (not all parts are boring, of course). The long haulers with all their bells and whistles with the stripes, flames, logos, contrasting colors whiz by. If I’m driving, Stan can move my pawn, and vice versa when he drives.

Marc, one of our grandsons, learned to count with this game, and we play it on the freeways in Los Angeles, too. It keeps him interested, when he is not playing one of his electronic games. We like it because we all can play it together--it is a family game.

I would love to hear your interstate stories.

I would definetely have to agree that the drive on the I-5 is very long and very boring. I don't know how truckers do it, maybe radio?!

That drive does get boring and so does any long road trip. Wanna B Truckers Board Game is the perfect game to make that road trip go by faster. Like you said everyone "can play it together--it is a family game." And not to mention, the game will not allow you to miss some of the amazing scenery that America has to offer while being on the hunt for the right colored trucks.
