My hubby and I have taken road trips together to the Oregon Coast, and East from Vancouver to Banff for quick getaways... now we have two boys.. and the Mouse is calling them. We have rented a Van Conversion for 10 days and were planning on driving straight through to Disneyland, staying there for 3 days - from there I dont' have a clue as to how we can manage to see Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon before driving back home. Is this trip a pipe dream? Is there anyone who can offer suggestions as to routes? Vegas is not meant to be a long visit.. but Circus circus might be a welcome break for the kids after being couped up in a vehicle with mom and dad. Am I crazy for thinking this is possible?
Hubby has made the drive in 26 hours apparently.. (dare I question him) and seems to think if we left in the late evening from Vancouver we would miss Seattle's rush hour - he would drive through the night and let the kids and I sleep... I would take over after Portland and follow I-5 until Daddy woke up again. I have activities planned for the kids, and we plan to take advantage of the loo in the van for the boys. I am praying that Disneyland will burn out the boys and allow for us to make it to Vegas in half a day. I would trade Vegas if I had to sacrifice either GC or LV... Disneyland is enough commercialism for one trip. . .
