Odometer challenge for moms of non-driving teens

Today is the first day of summer vacation for my teens (13 & 15) and I plan on setting the odometer this moring and not zero'ing out until August 30th (the first day of school).

If you were to guess how many miles you drive over the summer what would your guess be?



I'm estimating I will drive about 3,450 miles before school starts again.

  • Why are you driving so much more in the summer? If they want to leave, their friends can come get them... Why do you have to play taxi? That's just not right!

  • anon... we live in an area with no busing and too far for them to walk to the beach. I take turns with other parents but lets face it... it is summer they arent going to hang out in the house all day... nor would I want that.

    What do your kids do during the summer?

  • Get your kids a bus pass and a bicycle.

  • LOL... no buses in this area rklolms. And it is VERY hilly.... they have a bike but I dont think they will ride all the way to the beach with those hills to deal with.
