365 days till our second trip as a family and first trip in twenty years for inlaws we will be heading down from kansas driving all the way with seven kids and eight adults.
Oh gawd I'm having a flashback to my youth!! For me it was one station wagon with no A/C and only AM radio, 2-4 adults (sometimes only 3), 5 kids, and everyone's luggage. I laugh about it now but back then it was a nightmare! my Dad drove only the speed limit and only during the day...took us 4 days to get to FL from MA and 4 days back. Some car maker had to have seen us on the road & got the inspiration for the minivan. - Tinkerbell1265  440.4 #13 9:30PM
Yes twenty years ago it was horrible. We had no AC the only fan that ran off cigarette lighter got jammed stuck on dad then broke in a four hour traffic jam. Us three girls hated Bologna and hot dogs time we got home. We ate it all the way there and back. Not to mention the car over heated and broke down. Took two days to get there. Then on the way home we stopped at the beach and there was no showers so we road home we salt on our bodies. We was miserable during the trip but loved the one day we was there. Its a trip to remember. Our trip in Feb w/my hubby brannanfamily was very nice compared to the out dated days. Kids had movies to watch. As a kid I wished we they would invent TVs like today. So this will be my third trip but second with my parents &sisters. First time with my nephew and niece together. ;) good memories will be made again all over. - sbrannanfamily  4.0 #553 12:14AM
