Pre-road trip notes

Arrrgh!! They got me!! McDonald's has a trip planner where you can map out your route and find all the wifi hotspots along the way, along with their restaurant attached to it, of course. I guess the girls will be getting a few servings of their favorite vegetable (don't tell Grandma!) that they rarely get to eat.

And I also may be checking into the Walmart Store Locator along the way, just for emergency backup for overnight parking. From their site: "Wal-Mart permits recreational-vehicle (RV) parking on our store lots, as we are able. The ability to accommodate RVs is determined on a store-by-store basis, contingent upon available space, local regulations and ordinances."

I feel like a real, true American now. God bless the U.S.A.

Now if only I can find a 7-11 each morning for one of those great big coffees full of lots of amaretto creamers loaded with tasty hydrogenated fats, I'll be all set!

Come on into the RV world, Nancy! Although we have yet to stay overnight in a Wal-Mart parking lot, I think the directions to Wal-Mart ought to be on those signs saying "Welcome to Hometown, USA" as you come into a town.

French fries (should we call them Freedom Fries, or is that over? With all the rioting in France?) won't hurt your kids. Chow down, girls!

I don't even want to know what's in those amaretto creamers - they're so delicious.
