My friend and I, both first-time road-trippers, are planning a trip for mid-June. We have a general idea of what we'd like to see and what we hope to avoid, but we're not sure how long we'll realistically want to spend at each place or how much driving we should try to do each day. Here's our rough itinerary:
DAY 1. NY to Michigan (Ann Arbor / town along Lake Erie).
DAY 2. Michigan to Chicago, IL.
DAY 3. Chicago, IL.
DAY 4. Chicago, IL to Madison, WI.
DAY 5. Madison, WI to Western IA.
DAY 6. Western IA to Mount Rushmore.
DAY 7. Mount Rushmore through Wyoming to Montana.
DAY 8. Montana to North Dakota (Fargo).
DAY 9. North Dakota to Minneapolis.
DAY 10. Minneapolis.
DAY 11. Minneapolis to NE Wisconsin.
DAY 12. NE Wisconsin to Canada.
DAY 13. Canada 2.
DAY 14. Canada 2 to Ottawa.
DAY 15. Ottawa to Montreal.
DAY 16. Montreal to Kingston, NY.
Lots of driving on the first day, I know, but we want to escape the northeast quickly so that we can spend more time elsewhere. Is the whole thing too ambitious? I'd really appreciate some feedback! Thanks a ton.
