I think the subject line says it all! Looks like I'll be transferred to MD - I want to drive there (mid February I hope) - what an experience for my kids! We are in a 1988 Honda (need to get a full check up) I'm a single mom with 2 teens and a small dog (Bischon). I've been looking at routes - looks like the I-40 E would be the best way up to the I-70 towards DC and into MD. I've read traffic is yuck through DC but I'd still like to drive through it - a grand destination for the kids to see......I've been checking weather sites for mid-February, making mental lists on what to take....so advice now is all I need for the actual driving, some activities (journal, digital camera....what else?) to keep the kids from killing each other or the dog, keeping my sanity while trying to enjoy the country....driving tips, anything! Thanks in advance....I'm just hoping this transfer works out and we'll get to experience the travel!!!
