Driving/Moving Cross Country With Two Little Ones
Hi There, East Bay Community!!!
I am going to miss being part of this community, as we will be part of the statistical set of families leaving California :( That said, we are thinking of driving cross country (Massachusetts) with 5 year- old and 2 year - old who both have not had a lot of car experience. Are we bananas to think this is going to be fun or am I setting us up for weeks and weeks of no solid routine, a move away from everything that will equate to a lot of emotions? We have a camper van (Westfalia) and have driven at most 4 hours with my littlest and 8 -10 hours with my eldest. I hope, if we plan it right, we will visit with family along the way, stop and see some amazing sites, and take in all that is the West. I fear that a move, a cross-country road trip, and new schools will just rock their little emotional systems once we land. I would love to get any feedback, pros - cons, sites we should see, places to stay/camp in our van, or advice against the road trip altogether. We will be leaving the first week of August and will want to stop in Colorado and Iowa. Thank you in advance for your thoughts.
