I am also a high school senior, and as soon as I graduate, I plan to hit the road with my three best girlfriends. Our plan is to camp wherever we can and visit some really great landmarks and cities, for NO MORE than three weeks. We can't really decide where we want to go. We live in Massachusetts and we want to eventually head West. We also know that we would love to journey South, but we are afraid of the heat. Is the trip to New Orleans worth it? We want to eventually hit Colorado, and on the way back, we would travel farther North (Kansas, Missouri..Chicago maybe?). Do you think we should avoid the South during the summer entirely? Would you reccomend, for campers, something farther West? A concern of mine is getting stuck in states with nothing in them. We want to see great sites, but we don't want to be gone all summer!
