Transcription: 
When our family goes on a road trip, we bring a cooler in our car and pack it with food from the grocery store, so whenever we want to stop for lunch if the weather is nice, we go to a park or a rest stop and that way we get some fresh air and some outside time, and we don't have to eat fast-food, we can eat real food and then our kids have lots of room to play. That's the other thing we do, whenever we travel, we look for local parks and we do that because our kids are young enough to where they think that's great fun because it's a new park. Then sometimes we even ask parents that are there with their kids what they enjoy doing there with their family, and we find out all kinds of hidden gems that are great for families that we wouldn't have known from some guidebook on the internet. For housing, if we're going to be somewhere longer than a week, we like to find apartments or houses, either on Craig's List or some kind of other website, so that we don't have to worry about hotels and being quiet for the neighbors and dealing with early check-out times with kids. We can have more fun spread out in an apartment, and it really doesn't cost any more money

Author & Blogger, SimpleMom.net

Tsh Oxenreider is the full-time blogger behind Simple Mom and the founder and creative director of Simple Living Media, a blog network dedicated to helping people live intentionally (while throwing perfection out the window). She thinks a library card, a Netflix subscription, and a passport are some of the greatest parenting tools in the universe. She’s a wife to Kyle, mama to Tate, Reed, and Finn, and is the author of Organized Simplicity and One Bite at a Time: 52 Bites for Making Life Simpler. She is currently working on her next book. Tsh and her nomadic family currently live in Bend, Oregon, but several dots around the globe have also been called home (her 7-year-old has been on 60 airplanes and counting). Together, they love to travel, read books, go camping, and make homemade pizza for Friday Family Movie Night.

Tsh writes about living simply and intentionally at Simple Mom, which was named one of the Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2012. She was also number 2 in the top 50 Twitter Moms of 2011, was named one of the Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2011, her blog was nominated for Best New Blog of 2008, and has been mentioned on Apartment Therapy, HGTV, Better Homes and Gardens, Food Network, CNBC, CNN, NPR, Parents Magazine, and more. She speaks frequently about blogging, writing, living intentionally, and motherhood in between changing diapers and hitting the 'publish' button. She is also an advocate for Compassion International, serving as one of their bloggers, and is a regular contributor at (in)courage. Tsh also records a podcast with Homefries called The Simple Mom Podcast, which during one week ranked second under NPR’s This American Life in most listened-to podcasts.
