Hi! We're a military family getting ready to move from Monterey, CA to Saint Louis, MO. We have to travel across country in the middle of December and are heading to Virginia for Christmas before heading to Saint Louis. We have a couple of challenges to consider on our drive. We loved taking I40 on our way out here two years ago. We traveled in February and had no problems.
This time, we'll be traveling in mid December. We will be towing our boat and our son will then be two years old and much more difficult to travel with for long periods of time. We also have only about seven days to get from CA to VA.
Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to how to avoid lots of mountains (hard with the boat), bad weather, etc. Also, do you have any suggestions for fun things to do with a two year old along the way? We've already done the Grand Canyon. Any cute towns with great Christmas lights or celebrations occuring while we're traveling? We will be on the road starting December 16th and hope to arrive in Norfolk, VA by Christmas Eve.
Thanks so much!
