Guest expert (OK, my kid, who has spent lots of time on little getaways with his mama), nearly aged-nine Lil E and I offer up our very best tips for having a great time together on a road-trip. And just to prove we know what we are talking about, we taped these tips moments after we pulled up in front of our house after seven days spinning around a few states.
