I've been living in the bay area for five years and I'm very sad to leave but the housing costs are pushing my family out. I didn't want to move my children to a different school district yet again with no guarantee that I wouldn't have to do it again next year or the year after. I accepted a position in Kansas City. We're going to have a chaotic few weeks of finishing packing, storage of our stuff, floating around staying with friends while I serve out my two weeks notice, and then a road trip along I-40 to see the Grand Canyon, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Oklahoma City before heading up to KC. So I will need some kits to commemorate these times. I hope I remember to take some pictures!

So give me your best recommendations to commemorate these sad yet exciting times!

Whoa! That is a big move! We did the train ride from Williams Az to the Grand Canyon. It was wonderful.
I have zero experience on the other towns mentioned. I have been to : Las Vegas, St. Louis. Too.

Do you have Connie's Road Warrior kit? The kit seems more like for driving, but I used it to document a road trip and I loved it; the "life is a highway" WA is perfect for your journey to a new part of your life. :)
