With the end of summer quickly approaching, it’s probably about time you finally convinced your friends to head out on that road trip you’ve been gabbing on and on (and on!) about. But before you oh-so-hastily hop into your hybrid, be sure to take the necessary steps to plan your trip down to the very last detail.

And Allison Cole’s The Tour Diary is the latest book to be a planner’s best pal. There are six dateless weeks for scheduling every second of your getaway, and plenty more pages for noting necessary … um, notes (i.e. travel checklists, places to eat, and even important addresses). Simply skip to the back if you feel like partaking in some scrapbooking. Otherwise, just enjoy the fact that this cute little diary is printed on 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper and with soy-based inks. What a trip!
