We leave on our road trip in 8 days and all of the preparation we've done has included buying sheets for Chanel and $150 worth of tupperware boxes to pack our stuff in. I've also borrowed about 4 books on CD from the library and I bought hanging organizers for behind our seats so the kids can try to keep their travel toys, etc. somewhat organized.
I've started searching road trip blogs and sites to gather ideas for car activities so that we don't all kill each other on the days we are driving for 8 hours at a time. The more I look, the more I believe I will be in Target buying the portable DVD player we have never broken down and purchased before we leave next Saturday. Don't get me wrong, I have found some wonderful ideas for games and some cute printable road trip activities. But I don't believe it's 40 hours of material. And even if it is I have no desire to be turned around backwards getting car sick the whole time while leading the kids in how to play license tag bingo.
In two nights we will be having a few friends over to celebrate Will's 40th birthday, so I am assuming that before then we will have to hide my piles of camping paraphernalia that have started to form in the living room. Oh, and the house needs to be cleaned before then too. Essentially I will really start packing our stuff up after Saturday night.
How do you pack for two weeks for four people in super organized big tupperware bins that will fit into the back of the Tahoe? We shall see......
