766 Miles with Two Toddlers: An Essential Collection of Family Road Trip Tips
I’m planning a small road trip with my family after work today. Here’s what I know I’m bringing with me: 1 two year old, 1 three year old and 1 wonderful wife (the kids are wonderful too). It’s a short 766 mile (1,232 kilometre) journey to Toronto from Nashville. That’s about 13 hours on the road.
This will be our first family road trip. How hard can this be? I planned on googling for tips on how to survive the trip with the wee ones, but I decided I should ask my friends first, so I posted the question on Twitter. Thanks for your advice!
I’ll be tweeting from the road, but will be dropping offline when we cross the border. Canadian roaming fees scare me, Rogers is evil. I’ll be sure to check my email, comments and tweets from time to time over the next week. Please accept my apologies for any late replies.
I do plan to meet some friends in Toronto for a beer. Want to join us?
