Hey everyone, I'm new here. :)
My husband and kids are planning on moving to Las Vegas. We currently live in Michigan. So about a 2020 mile drive for us. We have 2 kids (6 and 18 months) plus 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 hamsters and a hermit crab. Any idea at all on how to make this trip a little less stressful and easier on us all?
We plan to rent a U-haul, then tow my husbands truck on that. I plan to follow behind in my Saturn. I'm trying to decide how to bring the animals. Is there a law when driving that far that they need to be crated or "in something"? We have a Boxer and a Pug, as well as 2 Himalayan cats. The one cat meows non-stop just when I take him to the groomers so any suggestions on what to do about this when taking a trip across country? (besides getting rid of him? LOL)
Also can anyone recommend some cool places to stop at on the way out there? When I mapped it through AAA it was taking us through Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, the tip of Arizona and finally Nevada. I'd like to make this a fun trip for the kids so anything a 6 year old would find cool, I'd like to take the opportunity to have him see it. He loves Army stuff and Dinosaurs (chance of seeing one of them on the road? Haha)
Also any other suggestions would be MUCH appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
