My daughter and her three friends and want to go on a trip this summer to Cedar Point in Ohio. It's about 3 hours and 45 minutes away from where we live. At the time of the trip, She will be 17, and her friends will be 18, 19, and 20. They all are smart and have good judgement,
Her friend who is 18 has gone to Germany without her parents, My daughter has been to France and Spain (which she worked, starting at age 15, to pay for with no assistance) without me, but those were trips through the school.
Her two older friends are in college and the one who is 20 is putting herself through and paying for her own apartment. Their parents are ok with them going.
Her friend who is 18's parents are close friends and are just as reluctant. We don't feel comfortable with the idea, but she hasn't done anything to make us believe she can't handle it.
The two oldest will be driving, and both have made trips like this before.
