Some of the same places Ruben and I just stayed at are over $100 more a night in summer!!
Maybe a two week road trip with six people is just too long. Maybe I should look into just going to northern CA instead. I really wanted to show the kids Washington though. Hmmm. I don't know. Adam is graduating in June, too, and that comes with it's own expenses.
Beth, have you looked into the train? The Coast Starlight is supposed to be quite scenic. Drive to CA, spend a night with family, leave your car at their house (LOL), have them take you to the train.

I did, especially after we enjoyed the train ride to Michigan so much. But, then when we get to WA we'd need to rent a minivan and that pretty much negates any savings. Plus the train wasn't cheap.
Driving is definitely the cheapest option. But, it's still expensive, if that makes sense. lol

ETA: Just did another quick check on Amtrak and to go from Los Angeles' Union Station, up to Seattle, would cost us more than it did to travel from here all the way to Michigan last summer. Crazy, huh?!

Jen, congratulations on the baby!


Beth, I hope it works out for you to get to Washington. I agree with Melody - try Hotwire and Priceline as the trip gets closer.

Good morning, ladies!!

Pam and Mel, yes, I will try Hotwire and Priceline. I'm not giving up yet. I was going to, and instead just plan a shorter road trip up the CA coast. Which is also nice. I've never been to Monterey, Carmel, Santa Cruz. All lovely places for sure.
But... I just wanted to show my kids what we saw. Take them on the ferry, and show the girls Forks. Maybe they won't like it. I don't know. Maybe I am over-romanticizing the whole thing and instead we'd end up cramped in the car for two weeks, tired of being on the road and at each others throats. So, maybe a shorter trip someplace closer would be better. I guess we'll just wait and see what happens.


Have a great day, everyone!

I love all these team names, they are so fun and creative!! We've been brainstorming costume ideas and have a few good ones, I'm getting really excited.
I'm trying to figure out if I should rent a car or drive ours, ours is great but Micah needs something to get to and from work and the minivan is such a gas hog. :/ I'm not driving the minivan though, it just isn't worth it without a bigger group to ride with. I looked at the $9.99 deal at Enterprise but it's a limit of 100 miles per day and that's not enough to get and from DL so....
