I am trying to plan a 2 week trip this summer for my husband, 2 girls (7&9) myself and my mom & dad. My parents have done this years ago, and since my dads health isn't great (copd, trouble breathing)this will be a challenge. I know some of the places I want to go to, but really no HAVE to get there and see it. Some of the list is Mt. Rushmore, Painted Desert, Redwood Forest, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone.
Really, I just want to have a great family time together. I also need to do this as cheap as possible. I am sure mom and dad will help, but I would really like to do most of it, if not all.
My parents have been to every state, I love to travel, my husband hasn't really traveled. Here are some of my questions and I would love any help I can get with this adventure. Thanks in advance.
Do you think it would be cheaper to rent an RV than to drive my Ford Excursion and stay in hotels? I was thinking cheaper on hotel and food. I know either way we will be using food we get at the store and only do dinning out on very special meals.
Food: Cheap things to eat and make.
Ideas on how to do this a cheap as possible and still have a good time.
How much do you think I am looking at saving for this?
Thanks again for any help.
