We did what some people thought was impossible.
We drove from Connecticut to Arizon in five days with three kids, a dog and two cars.
We didn’t take the scenic routes, we didn’t stop to take a look at the sights. We pushed through New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and finally Arizona. And we did it in the winter when the temps at some altitudes hovered around 0 degrees farenheit.
Give my husband and me a challenge and we will beat it.
Our roughest day was driving from Scranton, PA to Knoxville TN. It was over 600 miles. We started in the dark and we got to Tennessee in the dark. We had Ipads for the oldest two and walkie talkies for us to communicate (just in case cell service was unavailable). McDonald’s was one of the best stops we could have made, especially those with the playplaces! Those we a lifesaver when there were frigid temperatures.
We got to see some pretty amazing things as we drove, and I’m so happy that I was able to see the country. I would love to do it again when the kids get older and can understand what they are seeing. And I’d love to be in the same car as my husband so we can switch off drivers. But, all in all, it was a great trip. Tiring but pretty enjoyable considering what we had to accomplish.
