so here's my dilemma--2 year old daughter, 9 year old german shepherd and myself are moving in September. The trusty old Jeep is breaking down more and more (just under 200,000 miles), and needs to be replaced...we'll have a down payment ready for a newer car the day we move away. The jeep gets 15 mpg at present. The drive would take 3 days most likely, with frequent stops for both dd to run about and the dog to have most certain diarrhea because he has a tricky tummy that gets worse with anxiety-which will likely happen whether we take a car or plane. The estimated cost to do the drive (including hotels) is around 500. The estimated cost to fly is around 350 but we would need a rental car for about a week once we're there. The likelihood of the jeep having some type of difficulty on the trip is high. WWYD?
