When you read this the Garys will already be on the road for our cross-country road trip! We're so lucky to have friends who will be moving in and house sitting for us (and dog sitting for Cindy too!). I feel good knowing we have friends and neighbors taking care of our home and Cindy while we'll be away. We've brought plenty of memory cards to store all the photos I know we'll be taking and were able to fit everything in the car while still having breathing room. Thank you all for your recommendations on what to see and how to pack, I'll be sure to report back on what worked and what didn't.
