As far as I can remember the Gilmores have taken three road trips:
The first trip was to the Chesire Cat Inn & road trip to Harvard.
One to Martha’s Vineyard with Logan & Luke.
A long drive with Emily to the fake Mia’s wedding.
Let’s face it, most of the time on other TV shows when the cast takes a road trip or is outside of their element, it sucks. Not true in this case. (Well fine, the Martha’s Vineyard episode left a lot to be desired, but Amy didn’t write it, Daniel did.)
I really love the Gilmore road trips. I love watching the Gilmore’s watch a roomba vacuum the floor. It’s just that kind of show, it can work in all kind of situations. I’m going on a road trip & was trying to think how to make it more Gilmore. The only thing that I can think of is that I need to have my window rolling up privileges revoked. At least I don’t know how to fold a map correctly. I’m more of the Lorelai approach. I just crumple it up & say “Is it smaller? OK, then”.
