The First Road Trip Post

Hopey's teacher (a.k.a. one of my favorite people on the planet) asked me to make an itinerary of our upcoming road trip (see below) so she can use it to do some math stuff, which I think is such an awesome, fun idea and makes me love her even more, and I have to say typing it all out got me super excited/super scared. I flip-flop between the following two possible trip scenarios:

A. We return stronger than ever, refreshed, with professional quality photos, absolutely zero fights, in fact the whole trip was full of thoughtfulness and no complaining. Everyone was thankful the entire time and nary a tear was shed. Respectable news outlets want to interview us about how to travel well as a family, and of course all the RV shows want to see the inside of our camper and steal all my organization tips. 

B. Everyone's lawyered up. 

Go ahead and start praying.
