via Car and Caboodle
Last weekend, Ford lent us a Flex for our 5-hour road trip from Los Angeles to Bass Lake near Yosemite National Park. We’d be “cabin camping,” which is one step below car camping in terms of roughing it: a bare-bones cabin was provided, so no need for a tent, and meals were served in the dining hall, so no need for the umpteen-million cooking and cleaning supplies. Still, with a lake in which to frolic and two little boys to outfit for the four-day trip, I knew we’d need some serious cargo room. The Flex proved itself worthy not only with its ample space, but also with many other perks.
