Transcript for What you need for those long road trips with the kids
Time now for "Gma's" road trip. Rules for summer vacation. During the pandemic, we're hitting the road with Lori bergamotto from "Good housekeeping" joining us from the car with her whole family. How is it going? Good morning, George. Everything is good. And, yes, road trips are abounding right now, right? They're everywhere right now. I'm sitting next to Amy. She had a great one in the rv earlier in summer. What is the toughest part of long car ride? It's dealing with the achiness and tightness from being cooped up all day That's right. Comfort is key so one of the things that my husband's actually going to model for us is a way to keep your posture a lot straighter. If you turn around here, this is from back embrace. The crisscross design here, okay, guy, hold on. My kids are excited. The crisscross design here and that's going to help relieve tension from your neck, your upper back, your shoulders and keep you in a straight, you know, that posture nice and straight so you aren't aching and really hurting after spending so many hours in the thank you, Nick. That makes a lot of sense. I love to use ways to navigate when in the car but the difficulty is finding a way to mount it so you can still be safe. Exactly, a car mount is key when you're taking a road trip. But not all car mounts are made equally. This one from iaudi we like and the reason we love it, you can mount it on your dashboard. What we like to do is put it on our windshield. There's no distracted driving and at eye level so you're able to navigate and not have to move your eyes and shift them down to any other part of the car other than the road so you're always looking at the road and the best part is it's under $30 so can't beat it. That's a great deal right there. I see your kid there is in the backseat. They're still at the age where it's very possible almost at any age to get carsick? Yeah, so what we want is a carsick kit. Nothing worse than when somebody gets sick rummaging through the backseat or through the trunk. You want to have a bag that has all of your essentials. You want to have paper towels, wipes, extra clothes for just like you said, George, it doesn't even matter if you're a kid or an adult, you want to have extra zip top baggies so anything that needs to be contained can be contained. I feel like Amy should be doing this. She's nodding her head the whole way along. I guess she has sense memories just from a couple weeks ago. Also with your kids right there, especially on the long rides, how do you keep them, you know, from being too bored? Yeah, there's nothing worse than the are we there yet, guys. Magnetic games, my kids are playing -- don't say are we there yet? My son is playing with a play monster one. Even if your kids are a little too young for this, Leo, where is your coloring? We have these crayons from crayola. These are awesome. They are anti-roll. They're triangular and you can see that they won't roll all over your floor and keeps everything neat, clean and a safer trip to all this summer. Great stuff. Thanks very much.
