  6. Home rentals ?

    Another option regarding lodgings. If you were thinking of staying in one spot for a few nights you could consider renting a home or cabin for the family with companies such as Airbnb.
  7. Plan with flexibility

  8. Lots to consider as you move forward with planning.

  13. Sticky: Poll: Failed link.

    Maybe I slipped through the net as I can still visit the link and I haven't subscribed !
