Hi there, welcome to RTA !
I am sorry we just don't have time to do one on one trip planning. Please post your trip questions in the forums, you will get more respnse and it will be more beneficial to you and those that read it.
I am going off line in a while but I will be sure to look in later, thanks.
Hope you can help out. We are heading to USA from Australia in mid Feb 2011 for 8 weeks. so far our plan is to hire a motorhome from LA and head north west to Mt Rushmore area via Las Vegas and then down through Colorado right through to the South East over a period of about 3 weeks. Not sure if heading to Mt Rushmore region will be worth it as i'm sure it will be very cold and also do you think 3 weeks to get to the South West will be long enough? From there we will be flying/train etc up the east coast and through to the bottom of Canada with a final magical drive from San Fran back to LA (heard this is fantastic - do you think 5 days will be enough?). what do you think of our rough plan so far? We realise what the weather will be like (sadly only time to get 8 weeks off) and are hoping with this route we will be getting warmer weather as we go. Would be great to hear your suggestions.
