SO. An eight hour trip with a six year old. Sounds horrible, right? Not really. All you have to do is be ready.
I have my iPad fully charged - 11 hours of battery, and loaded with the movie Despicable me, and Marmaduke. I have my husbands ipod Touch fully charged (4 hours and 53 minutes) and loaded with the movies Space Pups and Scooby doo and the Vampire island.
I downloaded twenty or more free apps from the "kids and family" section of iTunes, and I downloaded two books for myself for the evenings for the ebook readers.
I have a bottle of juice and two bottles of water. Licorice whips and a bag of goldfish. In short, I am ready for anything :D
I will let you know how it goes - oh and he has his game boy as well1
