Tomorrow we're driving to Chicago to visit the Blueberry's grandparents and aunt and uncle for the week. For me it's usually a 10-12 hour 1-day road trip with only brief stops for gas and food. However, since the Blueberry eats at least every 3 hours during the day, sometimes more frequently, at a minimum I figure that will add about 4 hours to the trip for these stops. Thus, we'll stop overnight halfway there and play it by ear on the way back. Our trip to Virginia Beach last month taught us a lot about traveling with the Blueberry (e.g., we must eat when the Blueberry eats to maximize time on the road) so hopefully this trip will be a bit more streamlined. However, going away for a week involves bringing quite a bit more gear for the Blueberry and ourselves, not to mention the fact the fall clothes are a we bit bulkier than end of summer items. We're definitely excited to see family and friends and show off the Blueberry! Look forward to lots of pictures.
Off to pack!
