Both of your teenage boys were allowed to pick two places where they wanted to go and then you and your husband selected one location each. With careful planning and the blessing of really good weather, you were able to travel in and out of 15 different states without any real effort.
With carefully planned stops, some of the locations the boys selected were locations that included biking trails that crossed back and forth between two, three, sometimes four states.

Many people struggle with getting a good night’s sleep on occasion. Still others may suffer from chronic insomnia. These are usually temporary conditions that can be remedied by either physical or mental changes, such as not using electronics before bedtime, working out more or eating differently. But for some people, their sleep problems result from a medical condition. In these cases, they may need sleep disorder treatment.
