+ Leave explosives at home.
+ Bring a tent, after having trained at home on how to set it up. Kids would have fun setting it up (with or without any full night use) on site.
+ Reduce speed below 48 mph while driving through the only partially open community access gate.
+ Load up with plenty of maps beforehand of any possible intended routes; drill down via on-line maps beforehand, making printouts at different magnifications.
+ Make full reservations for all places in advance; a clear itinerary.
+ Involve kids fully in the route planning process. Map familiarity -- at different scale sizes. Involve them in navigation situational awareness during the trip.
+ Achieve work slow down days before departure date. Plan ahead to have full closure of outstanding work issues prior to departure.
+ Feel good about getting full value : pick up RV as early as available and leave as soon as possible.
+ Bring more warm blankets than we're likely to ever need.
+ Leave with good music CDs.
+ Leave with more good (newly rented & unviewed) DVDs than we are likely to ever watch.
+ Bring the other DVD player -- and extra batteries for it. (Does it run off batteries?)
+ Bring more/better firewood.
+ Bring a gallon-size container that could hold stove-heated water to give anyone taking a shower in order to have more on-hand.
+ Bring (buy if needed) binoculars.
+ Pack better -- putting things in cabinates, without anything ever having to roll around or constitute clutter on the floor.
