Sure wish I'd known about this site when I made my journey to Pennsylvania, and then back home to Seattle 3 years later.
But, this isn't about me...
I happened across a fabulous man in Pennsylvania, who after what is soon to be three years as a couple has decided to come out west with me. He needs some time to plan, etc., but also wants to depart before he's likely to hit snow in places like Nebraska, etc.
Could people suggest recommended departure dates (thinking September/October)? Anything to be particularly concerned about?
Also, I liked the I-80 route via the Badlands, Mt Rushmore, Montana, etc. that I took to get out east. I thought the route I took back (through Nebraska etc) was a lot less pleasurable. Any particular route recommendations? He's a huge history buff and would probably like to stop at a few inexpensive places.
