I was very excited to find this website as I am in need of some trip planning suggestions. My sister and I have to get our kids and ourselves from Annapolis, MD to Santa Rosa, CA for our brother's wedding at the end of June 2015. Our current plan is to drive there leaving either Friday, June 12th in the afternoon or Saturday, June 13th in the morning. Ideally we would like to be in Santa Rosa, CA by lunchtime on Thursday, June 18th. Is this doable or are we crazy for even attempting it? We will be in a minivan with 2 6-year-olds, a 9-year-old and an 11-year-old. Our current trip route is 64W through West Virginia, Kentucky and St. Louis then getting on Route 80 for the rest of the trip. According to Google Maps this will take us 43 hours. Does that sound about right?
I guess I am in need of some reassurances that this is possible and we're not biting off more than we can chew. If possible we'd like to be able to see some sites along the way but I'm just not sure where to begin looking or what places are worth stopping at.
Any and all suggestions/ideas/tips are totally welcomed at this point! Please help a lady out and tell me where/how to begin planning a trip of this magnitude. I'm really excited but also a little nervous about the timeline we have.
