WHEN Lizzie Post crammed into a Volkswagen Jetta last year for a three-day, cross-country road trip with a good friend and her cousin, plus a chinchilla named Bea and a cat named Denim, she knew far more was at stake than choosing the right fork or making proper introductions.

Making a low-budget, independent road movie isn't an easy task. But writer-director Martin Hynes came up with an ingenious idea before production began on his film "The Go-Getter," which opens Friday. "Because it's shot in 35 millimeter, we did something nonstandard," Hynes says. "We did a test shoot. But it was a very artistically expanded idea of a test shoot."

In the back seat, the children sleep as my husband drives us into the coppery glare of the setting sun. He squints in silence, maneuvering through his own thoughts, and I stare out the window. After a weekend in the mountains, spent in retreat from the holiday rush that was threatening to obliterate the joy of the season, we are returning home. Filled with something at least approaching peace, I am trying very hard not to make lists.

Plan your summer road trip using MapQuest.com. -- What's hot: I have to remind myself that websites evolve. I used to look up and print driving directions before running out the door. GPS solved that issue to a degree -- but not every car (or phone) has a GPS system. In planning summer travel, I found that MapQuest has all sorts of features that can make your road trip easier.
