I went on a few road trips as a kid and have fantastic memories. I feel road trips are a must on the to-do list of life. So, this summer I plan to take my family on our first ever road trip.
Originally, I had planned to just go from Los Angeles to Washington, but now I think from Washington I'd like to head east as far as Chicago, stopping in Yellowstone and MN along the way, and then head back to LA stopping in MO, CO and NV on the way.
I have many concerns/questions. First, I am wondering if this is too ambitious. Second, I have no idea how much time to allot for a trip of this size or even how to start planning for it. I also want to be sure to be well prepared and know about safety concerns especially because I am a single mom of three kids, who will be traveling with me. I want our trip to be fun and educational and affordable. This trip is the beginning of my own personal relocation exploration as well. Any tips?
