7593 miles (~375 gallons of gas, ~$920)
34 nights away from home:
- 6 camping nights (5 sites)
- 13 homes of friends and family (6 homes)
- 15 hotel nights (15 different hotels; 14 continental breakfasts)
- 25 different places
823.5 hours together as a family, almost always sharing one vehicle, one hotel room, one tent, etc. (minus 12 hours one night when Susan and I slept in a different family home than the kids, and minus a 3 hour anniversary lunch outing) = 808.5 hours.
55 hours of audio books (Harry Potter 6 & 7; a Roald Dahl collection; and InkHeart)
9 National Parks and Monuments

If you’re doing your math, you might notice that the nights didn’t quite add up – that’s because one night, the kids stayed at one house while we stayed at another!
