I'm planning my road trip for summer of 08' and I'm wondering, which do you prefer, shorter trips, a week to ten days, or, longer, 8 weeks plus? I think I'd prefer the 8 weeks, but I have some things I can't abandon altogether, like my job, and animals. I'm also thinking a 7-10 day trip would be less draining. I also think that the shorter trips could give me more of a range of life. Fall color in Maine, Burning man in August, Florida, or cali in the dead of winter, Asheville in spring... this kind of thing.
One of my intentions is also to find another place to live, frankly, NJ is sucking the life out of me... faster paced, psudo nature, and the "clean" air.... I just want to get out...
So I thought I could ask the experienced people, do you prefer week-10 day trips, or longer, 8+ week trips? Pros/cons
Sorry if this is a beat to death topic, I couldn't find any other threads exactly like this.
