Are We There Yet? - Meridican

If you are a parent, you have likely been asked “are we there yet?” This particular question is usually aimed at the backs of our heads by tiny voices, and the peppering typically starts 10 minutes into a multi-hour drive. The question is repeated with precision at 10-minute intervals and often becomes louder as the anticipation of what awaits at the destination becomes more intense. Of course, it would be virtually impossible to answer this pressing question if we weren’t aware of where we were going, or how long it should take to get there… perhaps it would help if we were more specific, and if we provided answers to a few questions in advance, such as: Where exactly are we going?
How long will it take?
Will we be taking any breaks (bathroom, energy… sanity?)
How will we know when we are getting close?
How will we know when we are there? From personal experience I doubt the barrage of questions ...
