Hey guys! I’m new to this site, but not new to traveling. I am going to take my 8 year old son on the road pretty soon. I haven’t done too much traveling with him other than short road trips and airplane flights... we are about to head out this summer going from the southwest to the Pacific Northwest and plan to be gone about a month. Anyone have any advice on things to be aware of, equipment/essentials to have for kids, or just general experience? We have a Honda CR-V and a tent. I have basic camping gear (propane stove, tarps, bedrolls, etc.)

Thanks y’all! Cheers!

Yeah it looked like she was more lookin for places to go, I’m more concerned about preparedness. Or things I may have overlooked. Or something other travelers wish they were told before they took their kids on the road.

Ive done some travelling/long road trips really with a one and three year old in tow (their mom aswell) and the biggest concern there was diapers and making sure a fucking eagle didnt take em. Your kiddo is eight, you know how to take care of him obviously so i think you got this :) Keep em hydrated, keep em clean, dont lose him :p
Sorry if that wasnt really advice but a little pep talk/support never hurts either. Ohhhhhh.... and theres a shit ton of resources here so look around, my guess is some of the answers you are looking for are in the archives of this site somewhere already too.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
