[quote=Woodsong;250526]Humph! Well, was talking with a friend about the desire to hit the road...cruise east coast/down to the islands then who knows...maybe keep going. We've got 2 children- currently 5 and 6. I was told by my friend that such a trip is a "dream not fit for kids" and should not be done, irresponsible, etc. etc.
I too hail from Ga. (Marietta), was wondering where you are located... was going to leave a PM but I think I messed it up... anyway, I too am researching this option for our two kids
... I do recommend "Black Wave" as a story that takes a bit of the shine off the apple but is probably pretty accurate... My big question is if this can be done with early teen girls.. I just wonder if she will be miserable not being able to talk on the phone
with friends or meet a the mall etc.. We don't have TV so we at least have that going for us... I know it would be better for them in the long run but perhaps the medicine kills the patient?? My 2Ks are now 7 (b) & 9 (g) and would be 9 & 11 when/if we leave... From my research
it seems taboo to take a 13 yr old... but I am sure it has been done...
Best of luck with the effort...
