Today starts a very hectic month. DD4 has a birthday party for one of her friends today. Her own birthday party is next Saturday for all of her friends from up here. The Thursday after that we point the van south for the 20 hour drive to Florida. In between, we have to purchase and pack up all of our provisions for the trip. 2 weeks in Florida, and the drive home, arriving sometime around Sunday the 25th. Then on Haloween, it's another drive 3 hours north to my mom's place to see my brother who is home from China for a visit. I'm going to need those 2 weeks of relaxation!

Ya'll are beating me up with the trip countdowns. We've got 271 days left. Do you know how hard it is to keep the minivan from pulling towards the south while on the outerbelt?

Too funny! I read this and instantly thought of the DIS Dad's Magical Express. Sure enough, the link goes your post on the same thing.

I've got the 2007 Magical Express video for the on-board DVD player! Anyone have an updated AAA "TripTick"?

ok Dads...question here now...We have a 5 year old Sony Handycam that has suddenly stopped being able to upload anything to a computer or TV or anything for viewing. So, I think we might be buying another one this week before we go to Disney...What kind do I get and what is the best one out there> I don't want to spend a fortune. 300 or so is the max I want to put into it with technology like it is anymore...it is outdated when you buy it. Do I need one with a Hard Drive, Disc, Tape (which is what we have now) or what? Advice or suggestions appreciated...I will probably go to Sams or Best buy this week so let me know.

Steve

Steve,

We have a JVC Everio Hard Drive that we really, really, really like---ours came with device to burn from the camera to DVD...

I would go that route, but I'm not sure how much we paid for it...we bought it a couple of years ago before DS was born.

Oh, and by the way, I realize we lost yesterday...in that kind of rain, whaddya' gonna' do...

You guys have fun on y'alls trips....I'm jealous...
