We are taking our three kids (12,7,5 yo) across the country for 30 days of fun with a large RV. My plan is to leave Vermont at the end of May 2012. So far the only things we HAVE to see are:
1. Friends in Detroit
2. Mall of America
3. Mt Rushmore
5. Family in Salt Lake
6. Redwood Forests
7. San Fran
8. San Diego Zoo
9. The Four Corners
10. Grand Canyon
My questions are:
a. reservations at campgrounds - it seems like most only allow 12 months out. What should I be looking out for?
b. is there any good software that I can use that will factor in traveling with a 40 foot motorhome?
c. we are letting the kids each research and select two places outside the main plan to visit. Has anyone else tried this?
d. for those of you that have made a similar trip - what would you have done different looking back? What was your biggest mistake? Best memory that you would NOT have changed.
e. given our rough route - what the MUST sees?
Thanks in advance
