Road-tripping ‘ain’t’ easy, but with a family of eight it’s the best way to go. Nikki is a strong believer in the power of experience, and there is no better way to learn about the immense diversity of the people, places, food, and spaces this world has to offer, then to visit them. Armed with a Rand McNally atlas, #TeamSunstrum prefers to travel old school and mostly tech free. Dining exclusively at non-chain restaurants to experience local Americana and often camping under the stars, Nikki’s family is aiming for not just a million memories, but maybe a million miles.
