What is your preferred means of traveling long distance with you child(ren)?

plane, train, automobile?

What do you do to entertain and occupy them for the long hauls?

Definitely by car! We've flow with both boys once and it's such a hassle with all the stuff you have to take.

Thanks Kristy (*Kiliki*) for the awesome siggy!!

we go on vacation to FL every year and up until this year we have always driven. This past March/April we flew. As much as I am not a fan of flying, it actually went very smoothly. Up to this point my preference has been by car, but I can see flying being a possible preference in the future.

In the car we have DVD players, books, coloring books, Nintendo DS/game boys for entertainment. We took the same thing for flying but with it being a much shorter trip, the TV on the plane was all they needed.

By car and usually we will leave around bedtime or a little later so that the kiddos sleep through most of the trip...
