In the middle of July we took nearly three weeks to drive across the country stopping at National Parks and other beautiful places along the way. It was AMAZING.
A look at our trip by the numbers. :)
one small bag with a pair of pj's and change of clothes for each person + a family toiletry bag + a small tote with bathing suits in to the hotel. In the morning the dirty laundry was added to a large canvas bag and the "daily" bag was replenished with new sets of clothes for the next morning.
