We completed the first leg our trip today, and have arrived in Wisconsin. And we have been fortunate to have gorgeous weather the entire way here. It has been a long time since I have visited Wisconsin in the summer, and it is a bit pleasantly disorienting to not worry about sliding around on snow and ice.
And all of our gear seems to have made it also. "Light" packing goes out the window with a family of five (and one of those five is an infant) on such a long trip, but we did a successful packing job, since everything fit in the car. I think there is something to be said for the fact that our "computer" equipment consists of 2 MacBook Airs and 2 iPads. The combined weight for all of them is probably equivalent to the weight of one laptop and accessories from several years ago.
