We're moving from Vegas to Vermont this August. And we figure it's a great excuse for a road trip. All our stuff is going cross country in a pod, so we won't be burdened with a u-haul. We just need to make sure that we arrive in Vermont around the same time as our stuff so the landlady doesn't freak out on us for leaving a pod in the parking lot.
We need to keep it cheap and we want it to be as relaxed and fun as possible.
Any suggestions on route, attractions not to miss, quirky campgrounds and whether we're insane to try this without renting a trailer. Would a couple days in Yosemite be worth the extra miles it will add to the trip? (we've never been and always thought we'd visit in winter)
Did I mention the dog is going to have to be in a crate in the back of the pickup 99% of the drive (no crew cab for us!) so we're going to avoid the southwestern route.
