I've been reading along..it's a great report. I love all the pictures, particularly the picture of you on Test Track! I think I make almost that same face when I ride it!

Just wondering, did your husband give you a hard time about wearing matching shirts? I've made shirts for the kids for our October cruise, but so far DH is balking....I'm trying to figure out how to convince him. Or possibly trick him, if it comes to that.

LOL, My DH, I love that man oh mine! No he wasn't big on wearing the matching shirts, but didn't give me a hard time about it. And Knowing he didn't like the idea too much, I did do his shirts differently than the kids, and gave him a choice of Disigns. He went along with it because he knew how excited I was about the whole thing! I haven't thought about making any for the trip this year, but will probably make us at least some Halloween ones, or at least the Ones with our Cruise's Logo on it. I asked him the other night, after showing him Jen's Disign for our group, "For our Embarkation day, would you like this on a White Shirt or a Black Shirt?"
I suppose that how I do it, I don't give the choice of yes or no, it's this or that. He chose to have the Disign on a White shirt, so I'll probably do up 4 of those for us.
Perhaps if you tell your DH you want matching shirts for one day or two days out of the WHOLE trip, that might make a difference in how he reacts? Hey, if it's a cool disign, really, how CAN they say no?

I do know we had to stop for gas 3 times on the way down and that was $60.00 USD each time. We stopped in one hotel on the way down, and that was 47.95 plus taxes USD for each of two rooms.
Lunch at Crackerbarrell was $47.85 plus tip on Day one, dinner I honestly don't remember what we did, think maybe we ordered a pizza. Breakfast was included in the room price for the hotel that night.
Day two we stopped for a late lunch in South Carolina and that was $52 plus tax, then again for supper at Subway in Georgia. We didn't stop again till we were at our Hotel in Kissimmee.
So by those estimates:
Gas and food and a place to sleep was roughly $400.00 one way.

In retrospect, we could have spent less on food if we stuck to fast food places, and packed our own snacks and drinks from home.

We did do better on the way home with regards to food. We did pick up snacks and drinks and premade sandwhiches for dinner, and drove straight through to home.

For us, the consideration to drive or fly weighted on the cost difference for our family of 6. We'd have to drive almost 4 hours to the closest US airport (Syracuse) and the best deal we could get would have been about $1560.00 for all 6 of us return. Then the cost of a car rental. So it definately made sense to drive. I also had to weigh the time difference. A 24 hour drive vs a 3 to 4 hour flight.......
We turned it into a vacation within a vacation, the drive. It really was fun and worth the time for us that time, our first time.
I may reconsider that enjoyment factor after we do this again this fall! I wonder how many times we can make that drive FUN! Though I must admit, I am looking forward to the next time!
Thank you!

We just came back from a baseball tournament in Brockville (about 2.5 hr away) a little bit longer I would of considered tying them to the roof rack!!! So we would have to wait a couple of years before attempting such a trip with my kids.

I've made white ones for the kids with our Dis Logo, a large design, right in the front middle of the shirt. I'm considering doing black shirts for us, with the Dis Log pocket sized on the upper right corner and just presenting it to him the morning of embarkation as a fait accompli!

I just happened onto this thread, and I am enjoying reading your pre-trip experience, looking forward to the TR itself. You are a VERY creative Mom, let me send you kudos on your creations, and then I also mean your family too!

Congratulations on your dd fighting and beating the cancer monster (as I call it), and to you and your family as well. Too long and too many stories about how that cancer monster has touched my life, but I understand almost completely (thank the Lord I never had to watch it fight any of my kids but plenty other relatives and friends).

I don't think I'd be able to watch anyone I love ride on that sling-shot ride either!

The pictures are likely gone because this trip report is over 3 years old.
