I am trying to plan a full Cross Country trip for next Summer (2008). Sometime probably in August. I have been all over the US before, CA, TX, FL, and just about everywhere up and down the east coast. Now I feel it is time to hit the big National Parks I have always wanted to. Going will be my girlfriend, my dog (a medium sized husky/shepherd mix without all that heavy husky fur) and myself. We are looking at renting a small SUV to do all the driving. Me and my girl have already completed a 2800 mile round trip road trip last year. So road trips are nothing new to us.
Here is a link to a preliminary map of our trip:
Cross Country Trip
Most of the trip we will be doing some decent camping.
We are looking for any advice from anyone who has done some similar road trips as to what to expect, what to bring that you usually wouldn't think you need, etc...
