In a few months, we’ll be traveling from Kansas to Indiana, again. We do it every year. We’re learning, each year, to prepare for every travel emergency imaginable, even if we don’t think it’ll happen. This year, we’re bringing a battery charger with a car adapter. Those Leapster batteries will never have a chance to die. Since it takes a whopping 15 minutes for them to re-charge, we don’t have to worry about waiting long if both sets die at the same time!! w00t Good for the environment too!!
We’re also planning on purchasing a 6-pack of 20-oz Sierra Mists (or 7-ups) to help the kids if they start to feel woozy from car sickness. I think they’re, for the most part, outgrowing it. We did it last year, with nary a problem, and I’m not risking it being because of the soda by not having it on hand. Me? I’m hoping to convince Josh that $150 for a car adapter for the truck for the laptop is a smart investment. We’ll see on that. We have internet on my phone, so as long as we’re not in a dead zone, we should be able to find whatever we need. If AT&T’s mobile net internet won’t load a page, I just pop it into Opera Mini and be good to go. Wish I could have Firefox, but they won’t make one that runs on JAVA, which dumbphones use (and smartphones, btw!).
