    Default I Need Help!

    Okay, here's the deal. I'll be turning 18 very soon and I really would like to take a lengthy road trip with some friends. Sort of a coming of age thing. Anyways, I have no clue where to go or what to do. I've been reading up on all the essentials...traveling cheap, lodging, food, necessary baggage, etc... The first thing I really need is a good location. I'll be leaving southern Indiana and hopefully in the next few weeks. I'm thinking maybe 1 1/2 - 2 weeks. It doesn't have to be far, but I want a good drive, movie style, and fun places to check out. The destination isn't important, more the trip there and back. I would prefer to take a different route home then to the destination.

    Please, any info is helpful and feel free to ask whatever questions you need to.

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    You really haven't given us much to go on, because there are a million possibilities of directions that you could travel.

    But since you say you want to make the destination secondary to the drive, I'd say don't pick a destination! Pick a road, and when you get to an intersection, pick a direction, and just see where you end up. Once you get to the 5-7 day mark, take a look at where you are and start making a trip back towards home.

    The Great Midwest, Illinois to be precise

    Default Like Michael Said...

    Pick a road, or even a river. I myself prefer to stay off the interstates whenever possible. Just drive down the road and you never know what's around the next bend. And those little towns you'll encounter are a real treat.

    Perhaps pick a stretch of the Mississippi River which is really a beautiful drive through the Midwest. I like the town of Galena, Illinois, the town that time forgot. Then, nearby is Dubuque, Iowa, also a town with lots to see and do.

    Keep on Down that Two Lane Highway. --RoadDog
