Hi there, I was feeling pretty confident about this idea when we started thinking about it. Now...4 days away from our departure, I'm starting to get nervous.
We're driving from Nashville to LA in 4 days. (Leaving on a Friday late afternoon/evening), then checking into our hotel in Anaheim sometime on Tuesday morningish. In between, we're completely unsure of the itinerary. Part of me wants to reserve the roadtrip hotels now (deal website) so that we can get a good rate, but then are afraid that we'll be completely off in our estimates.
Our longest roadtrip prior to this was 3 1/2 hours away and back in the same day. The kids did great, but this is a whole new ballgame.
My husband and I will be sharing the driving duties. We will have a 7, 4, and 2 year old in tow. I'm trying to Triptik it, but haven't had much luck with that yet.
What suggestions would some of you have? We want this to be a fun, adventurous sort of thing, but I'm a little Type A, so just hitting the road with no idea where we'll be staying at night is not sitting well with me.
