Bring a DVD player if you have one, a book or two that your 5 yr old likes and a couple of toys. Oh and snacks and drinks for your older son. If at all possible try and make the drive at night that way the kids will sleep, less stops for food and the potty. If you have another adult traveling with you it would be easy as you could sort of take shifts. I make a 1000 mile trip every year with DS and always drive at night. If you are going to drive during the day make sure that you take frequent breaks for your older son to get out and stretch. Best of luck to you. I hope you have a great vacation.
