We are getting ready for another big trip, this one for 6 months to the US. We’ll be spending 3-4 months of the time driving/camping, so we have a whole different set of things to figure out for this trip, from solar battery chargers for the phones etc, to what’s the best laptop/tablet etc solution for me to be able to work as we travel, to how to we keep the kids up with their school work.
I have already got travel journals sorted for all three kids (I had a gift voucher from Blurb, so I actually made them one each, with loads of blank pages for drawing and writing, a big map of the states, and lots of photos from the last o/s trip we did, 3 years ago).
Also we’ve got house sitters sorted out for our house here (though we have a lot of work to do on the house before we hand it over to them, including MORE decluttering!), but we still need to find a house to sit ourselves for our last two months over there, in Berkeley CA. So sing out if you need someone to look after your house in the winter!
