As the owners of a loving, older cat and former dog owners, we know all too well the hassle of trying to figure out what to do with our pet while we travel..

Easy. They come with us. The cat? A eight hour drive and he's rolling in catnip on Grandma's floor. But, our stuff is a bigger problem. What on earth do we do with all our stuff when we're on an extended trip? We've got some great tips for long term travel storage that have worked for us in the past.
A lot of planning goes on behind the scenes to make our adventures possible. A lot. Travel insurance can kill a travel budget. Especially for us, since we're buying travel insurance for a family of four. For six months of travel, we got quotes ranging from $394.94 to $1725.00 for worldwide insurance, including the USA. For trips of 60 days or less, consider getting a ...
