Long long time ago but we camped with the kids from 6 months old. We always filled their "area" with toys and usually bought something new to keep them occupied. The one thing that worked consistently was something that would either light up or make a sound. We tried to "schedule" the long distances right after they had a meal as it seemed to calm them. We did not travel at night when at all possible. While you may "make the miles" you are going to pay the next day if they didn't sleep well. Finally, you are traveling with young one's. Appreciate this time of life and don't be in a hurry. And, expect that there are going to be periods where they are going to be cranky and it is safer to just stop. And don't forget to keep the non-driving spouse happy; they are going to be the one dealing with the kids.

We survived the trip! Actually had no issues whatsoever! Ran 70-75mph the whole way. Love the Goodyear tires! We stopped every 130-150 miles for gas and to get the boys out and about. I think the new car seats helped a lot. We hooked up an ipad and played nursery rhymes and they loved it.
We limited the drive to 400 miles a day.
Thank you for all the advice and tips and sharing your experiences!
