I have been reading the forums and all the information on the site and it has been a great help.
I am a single mom and I am taking my three kids to California and staying there for a month. I am working in CA for a month, so I have worked it out instead of my company paying for 4 round trip flights for me to go back and forth, that they will pay the mileage for me to drive. I will pay a small difference on a Residence Inn room while we are there in CA.
So now the road trip across the country with three teens, only one of which will be able to help with the drive. I am trying to work out details on packing my small SUV (Honda CRV) and did see a reference to a site. I don't have a roof rack but found that they have a roof top carrier that you hook onto your car with some J hook clips. Has anyone ever tried these? Also, any suggestions on packing the car with everything that we will need for the trip across the country?
