We’ve completed leg 1 of our three day journey to Disney-World! We got up at 2am, locked up the house and drove off into the night. The kids were pretty excited, but soon enough they went back to sleep. Mummy & I were pretty excited too!
Partway through our drive, we decided to change our planned route. It turns out that I-95 in New Jersey is a toll road, and as much as I don’t mind paying a toll to pay for the upkeep on a road, the $62 or so they were looking to charge was outrageous. So, Mummy did a quick search on her iPhone for an alternate route, and she found one that was only 1/2 hour longer than our original route, so we took it!
I have to say, Mummy was pretty impressive today. After working and organizing a lot of the last minute details and packing, she only managed to get about 2 hours of sleep before we left. She then had to play navigator for our changed route, and also kept everyone happy with a steady stream of sandwiches, snacks & drinks!
Overall, the change of route was a great decision. We went through a portion of Pennsylvania that was really nice. A lot of farm country and small towns as we drove. Over all, we hit 7 different states in just about 12 hours. Massachusetts, Rhode island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland & Virginia. It was a long drive, and by the end, we were all ready to make camp.
We pulled into the Americamps KOA, were escorted to our site and set up. Once we we had the trailer all set, we all put on our swimsuits and went for a swim! It was so nice to relax, cool off and have some fun in the pool after the long drive. It was just what we needed!
Tomorrow we start leg 2 of the journey and will stop overnight in Georgia. I can easily see us jumping in the pool once we set up there as well!
