My husband deploys in October so I will be driving to be with my family for a month in Seattle, Washington and driving back in the begining of January. My best friend is flying into Fort Benning from Seattle to take the trip with me, and as well as my almost 3 year old & almost 1 year old (they will be those ages at that time). We are wondering if anyone has any advice on the route, wether we should take the "sunshine route" or go the way mapquest says to go, which brings us going northwest most of the way. Also any tips on planning the trips, what to budget, basically I've never taken a roadtrip that far before, so any advie is better than none! We usually just roadtrip around the south. Thank you so much!
