We’re (and by “We”, I mean “I” – my wife thinks I’m nuts) considering a trip in 2013 from NJ to Yellowstone. It’ll be the 2 weeks between the end of summer camp and the beginning of school (late August). Any thoughts on where to stop, places worth staying an extra day or two along the way etc…
In my initial walk through on Google Maps, I looked at Columbus OH for the first night (about 9 hours) and Des Moines, IA for the second night (about 11 hours). That may be aggressive, maybe I should break it into 5 days out, 4 days there, 5 days back? If I do go that slow, where to stop, what to see? Any specific landmarks that are convenient for RVers (pulling a 5er)?
Considerations: Mt. Rushmore, Chicago (for a real Chicago Hot Dog), what else have you got for me – keep in mind, this is just a passing thought at this point, haven’t put much research beyond trying to figure out how many days it would take.
