Best of luck to you.
We can grab something together. Oh and just in case your in the mood to bake prior to the trip I see all kinds of yummy things you make and I will help you eat them on the bus.lol
Good luck Cristabel.
Beth our scavy team is the PC (Pacific Coast) Cruisers.
Well, I've been told I am not allowed to miss the BBQ. I'd say just show up. One more isn't going to matter. We'll scoot over and make room for momma and baby!
LOL We'll see. I'll have to think of something! Maybe brownies....
Any other team names, ladies?
We went to a birthday party today. Ate too much. Spent too much time in the fresh air and sunshine. Now I want to go to bed and it's only 9PM!

Good morning, ladies!! I hope you all had a good weekend. I am feeling a bit better. Coughing is my main problem now. Who knows how long that will go on!
I've been thinking about our family road trip to OR/WA that I've been planning. It is getting so expensive. The problem is just getting to WA and back adds 4 travel days. That adds more hotel, food and gas. But, flying isn't really an option either. I don't know. Hotels are just so expensive that time of year. 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.
Sorry. Just thinking out loud. We'll figure something out. We always end up having great family vacations, no matter what we do.
Beth, as the time gets closer, start looking up Hotwire and Priceline. If you get in the area that you like, and pick a good star level, then it should be fine.
You can even start looking now, to get some idea of where everything is, and pricing.
Kelly, love your team's name!
Goooooo PC Cruisers!!!
Congrats again Jen!
Don't forget, today is the 30-day mark for the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour, just made reservations for Theresa and I!!
Last call for Photopass... PM me for more information
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?!
And Goooooo we will !
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.
Yay!! This is probably one of the things I'm looking forward to the most
Our Scavenger Hunt team name is "Route 66 Road Trippers". We can't wait!!!
Thanks Mel. You can give props to Trudi for the name. She came up with that one and we all loved it.
Trudi I think I am DEF going to need to get a scooter now LOL. The pressure is on
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!
