I'm not sure if this is ok or not, but I wanted to get my TR started before we actually leave. I love following along with TRs that are taking place as they post, so I hope everyone will enjoy this! So we have 1 week before we leave for Disney! This will be our 2nd time at the Fort (but have been to Disney before that but stayed at other resorts!) Right now we're getting everything packed up in the RV. We traded our pop-up in this summer and bought a 29' Bullet with a bunkhouse for the kids. While we adored our pop-up it was just getting small with the addition of our newest little boy. We took it to Montauk (Hither Hills) this past May with all of us and while we all fit while sleeping, we were lucky it didn't rain very much because we would have gone stir crazy in there! So this will be our first major trip with the RV. We have done long weekends in it and hopefully all the bugs have shown themselves (we had a leak about a month ago but other than that seems pretty good - knock on wood!) The kids are super excited to leave, although we've been fibbing about when we actually go because if the official countdown starts they would go nuts. So all we've told them is that we leave sometime around DS1's birthday (the 14th). We have most of the clothing packed up and the only major things we have left to pack are the foodstuffs and my camera gear. Not bad for a week out. I picked up a Pelican case for the gear (which I can use on my kayak after the trip) so I'm just waiting for that and then we'll be good to go! I have packed up little bags for the kids for the car since we're driving straight through. The bags have their water bottles, snacks, clipboards, games I printed from the internet like car trip Bingo, Eye-Spy and Battleship). The winners of the games will get little prizes that I got from the dollar section at Target. Let's hope that doesn't cause more fights. So I think we're just about ready and starting to gear up mentally. Traveling with 6 kids under 7 for 28 hours is always interesting (it's really 24 hours from our house to Disney, but we have to stop quite a bit during the daytime hours). Thankfully they are used to traveling. We drive straight through because the nighttime hours are when we make the best time. I can't drive the beast with the RV, so DH takes the wheel the entire time. We may look for someplace to stop for a few hours around the bottom of South Carolina, just to give DH a nap while I run around with the kids. We're leaving at 2am, so if we drive for 16-18 hours that would put us at a good time to stop. Here's a picture of the beast... DH nicknamed the van "White Lightning". Haha!
