I am new to this site & am hoping to get some feedback on my upcoming trip over July 4th week.
My DH (broken leg & limited ability to drive), my DD9, our small 2 yo dog & myself have invited my sister and her two DDs (14 & 9) to take a road trip with us to visit my DH's parents. That is Mpls to Knoxville. 1000 miles one way, 9 hrs per day for 2 days just to get there. We have made this trip 3 times without them and I even did all the driving last Christmas after my DH broke his leg & had surgery the week before. We have a 2003 Kia Sodona with a X-Cargo X-Treme Car Top Carrier. The car can seat 7 people. The girls have their own portable DVD players & iPods.
We already spend a lot of time with each other so I don't think there should be too many problems. But my worry is that the van is too small for all of us. I can't seem to find full size van rentals anywhere. Is renting a better idea or will this work out ok?
Thanks for any feedback.
