What Was in the Hatch:
The Gear Bag:
In the car:For the adults: A small shoulder bag with knitting, magazines and a current novel, a small blanket and pillow. I also kept a folder for each section of the trip with maps, notes, brochures, and reservation confirmation print outs. This was kept in the front seat where I could refer to it easily even if I was being both driver and navigator (when The Woodsman was taking his afternoon nap).
For the kids: lots of books, MP3 players loaded with audio books (downloaded from the library before leaving), a craft bag, a bag of car games and activity books, a trash bag and a bag of summer school work.
