As drivers, it can be easy to come in from a trip and just veg out. We get that. Life on the road is not easy. While recuperating is necessary, and important, it is just as important to keep the ties and connections with friends and family. Next time you’re in, forget about hosting a get-together, or driving around to squeeze in as many visits as possible – hit one of these events and tell everyone to meet you there. You’ll be able to socialize, spend time with your loved ones and create some long-lasting memories.
