This is painful

I forgot how much work is involved with these cross-country road trips. I was sick to my stomach yesterday when I started the process. I feel a little bit better today. There is just so much STUFF!

Then there is the other stuff I have to pull out and make available should the need arise. Like our Wills and life insurance information. I gave my sister a list of everyone she needs to contact if something should happen to us and, of course, I had to include information on how to update the blog :-) But rest assured, I'm not anticipating any problems - just covering all my bases. This will be our 6th St. Louis/Phoenix road trip since 2000, so I've pretty much got the routine down. It seemed so much easier when Jack was little.

That's all I've got for now. It's time to get the dog and the girls to my sister's house. Next update should be from Amarillo, Texas.

Just the electronics

This is about half the stuff we have to fit into the van

Dear Ann,
I hope things are going well on the road. Travelling with our kids is like holding your breath for a long long time - just praying to God that you didn't forget anything you really need and that there are no emergencies. You are a veteran at this and I trust everything is going fine. I hope you actually get to enjoy some of your visit with old friends. Take good care.
