I am planning to take a solo road trip in mid June from Orlando to Chicago to Colorado Springs. I would like to spend 3-4 days in Chicago, which leaves me with 10-11 days to make the drive and enjoy attractions. I am not into tourist traps, but would love to stop off to see some nature, camp, and enjoy the small towns. Any suggestions for route, stops, and other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Also, this will be my first major road trip so any advice regarding comfort and tricks of the trade is welcome!
