Mid-Term (PR 525)

We Go, Where You Go

Trader Joes, the perfect companion for fall road trips

            As autumn approaches and the leaves begin to change color, road trips become even more beautiful. Whether you’re in the Pacific Northwest or the Northern East Coast, fall is one of the best times of the year. At Trader Joes, we are taking your stories and sharing them with everyone to grow the community nationwide!

            This past week a few buddies and I planned a road/hiking trip up in Settle. Once we arrived in Washington, we made a stop to the local Trader Joes and grabbed some snacks, among other things to take with us. We tend to do this often because for the price, they have such a wide, yet healthy assortment of choices. Having energy is key especially because we planned to have some pretty long days. After two hours and some change of driving, we finally got to our destination, Mount Rainer National Park. We woke up early and had some breakfast bars on the go. Being that we didn’t bring a mini stove, it was also really nice that we grabbed bottled coffee before we left. Reusable water bottles were also an honorable mention as there was a fountain with fresh water on campsite. The day was amazing and so were the sights and trails, especially the fresh huckleberry’s that are all over the place.

            One suggestion when you camp…., bring enough food! Sadly, two days in we had to run back towards the city to grab more supplies (Food & Drink). The best we could find was a general store, but for one more night, that would do. We finished the trip eating some smores by the campfire and listening to music. A perfect ending.

We packed up early the next morning and as we exited the campsite, we drove for about 20 miles. That’s when we saw something amazing, ANOTHER TRADER JOES! Wow, if only we had gone a little bit further down the road yesterday than we would’ve saw it. Last night I was craving some of those chocolate covered pomegranates. It was all good because that drive to the airport, freshly stocked on snacks was great. It’s true what they say though, Trader Joes goes where you go.

Overall road trip? 10/10
