My best friend and her 3 kids and two dogs are moving to Seattle. She decided to drive;making it a scenic trip with stops at whatever oddball attractions we can find. (Or ones you can suggest.)Neither of us have ever taken a trip like this in our adult lives. Can you believe she was gonna try to do this on her own??? We are renting a 15 passenger van, packing light as safely possible and heading out the end of Sept '16. We want to go by way of Denver to visit friends, rest up and see some stuff. From there its on to Seattle, her stop. I will be then going solo to California to meet with family and pick up my hubby(hes doing work in Bakersfield) and then the trek back to Georgia for the both of us....another new undertaking. I guess the point of this first time post is to get some feedback, advice, anxiety counseling lol or tips for making the most of this highly anticipated 6000 plus mile journey.
