Greetings Grrandchild . Welcome to the de-I and Wife School of Travel. As you have never gone on a road trip before, we feel it is best to gradually work you way into the world of de-I/Wife travel. I know that you are internet savvy and have probably done some searches on our travel reputation.
THESE ARE ALL TERRIBLE LIES...DO NOT BELIEVE WHAT YOU READ ON THE INTERNET!
Anything that has been posted in the way of a review, commentary, police brief, court action in regard to de-I Sandia Outfitters (Our Motto: You Have Nothing to Lose But Yourself), has nothing to do with the firm de-I Sandia Children Tours that you are not traveling with.
For your first leg of this trip we are going to do a gentle 12 hour trip in a car with frequent passages through very steep windy mountain roads with no guard rails. This was what the brochure your parents described as the 'gentle mountain vista' section. You will get at least an hour of break time (that's total break time not time in one unbroken section) during the trip.
Stop whining, I know you could have flown to Hong Kong in this amount of time.
When you are done with this segment, you will be completely broken...NO I MEAN...you will so experienced that the rest of the ordeal...NO I MEAN...trip will seem a breeze.
