A friend is getting married in Watsonville, CA, on August 18th. Can't afford plane tickets, but can afford about 2 weeks to get there and back. Have a smattering of friends & relatives we could stay with along the way... Columbus, Ohio; Kansas City; & Boulder, CO... is there a possibility of this being sane and fun, or is it just plain crazy? It would be me (middle-aged mom), a 7-year-old, a 9-year-old, and a mini-van... or a middle-aged Honda Civic. Brutal honesty welcome.
