Hi all. This has helped me and since the holiday is approaching I thought I'd pass it on. I haven't yet mastered riding in the car as a passenger any "long" distance on the highway. I especially get nervous when there isn't any scenery that suggests civilization. Meaning, no exits or rest stops for awhile, no farms or houses. It's not like we live in the midwest or Alaska. We live in upstate NY and there's always plenty of traffic on the highway. Those of you have this problem understand. Anyway, I've taken to bringing 2 portable DVD players with me. They're both charged up and one even plugs into the cigarette lighter if need be. I pick out light, silly comedies which are a great distraction. If need be, I ask my husband to stop at rest stops, to stretch my legs and relax. I try to keep my body relaxed in the car by not tightening up muscles. Also, when we're going someplace a couple of hours away, as we will be tomorrow, we generally stay overnight. Casino trip to play poker. 2 hour drive. I'm much better when not tired. If anyone else has any suggestions for this situation, they would be greatly appreciated. Nicki

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
