I've got load of snacks, small cans of soda, juice boxes, & el cheapo toys & games from Dollar Tree. Just cleaned out the car. The oil has been changed recently, & I will check all fluid levels tonight. Tomorrow I'll rack the girls out fairly early and give them a carb-heavy breakfast so hopefully they'll zonk out fairly soon after we hit the road. (I've got enough goodies to give them something new every hour, though, in case they don't.) Since I drive a station wagon, I can put one girl in each row of seats, if need be, & keep them from fighting that way. Ah, I will also air up the tires in the morning. I've got extra antifreeze, oil, & jumper cables. My spare tire & jack are both in good repair.
I'm really looking forward to this. I haven't been on a road trip since I lived in Virginia. Bobbie's teacher gave me a funny look when I told her we didn't have a definite destination in mind, but that's half the fun! I'm going to do some looking online in a few. I'll be taking my laptop & my cell phone & chargers for both. Everything's accounted for that can be.
Looks like we're going to Del Rio, y'all. That's what Googling "3 hours west of San Antonio" got me. It's actually out Hwy 90, not I-10, but a) I-10 heads northwest, not due west, & b) there's not a damned thing out I-10 between San Antonio & El Paso except for Kerrville, & I'd like to go a wee bit further than that.
Now I just need to figure out what the hell there is in Del Rio. 'Bout the only thing I know about it is that's where Radney Foster is from (I know this from his album Del Rio, Texas, 1959.) Maybe there's a Radney Foster museum or something, but I somehow doubt it.
