We are traveling the month of Aug. in our 25 ft. Class A rv. We are leaving Okeechobee, (1 hr s. of Orlando ) and heading for Sandpoint, ID. At this point, after seeing most of the SE we are going to head towards South Dakota making stops just to sleep. Touristy stuff starts in S.D. We would like to stay off the interstates and may travel up I 75 to SR 82 which will take us through Montgomery, continue on 82 to Tuscaloosa, then pick up 78 through Memphis, 63 N of Memphis to 7 and Kanas City. If anyone is familiar with this and thinks it is just too slow ( keep in mind we are in a RV and don't go too fast anyway, lol!) or has too many small towns with traffic, please let us know.
Any thoughts of Kansas City and good places to stay or eat?
Next on to The Badlands. We have heard that 20 is a nice alternative to 1 90? Again, any thoughts? Somehow we will end up in the Badlands area. Any suggestions are welcome! Next stop Rapid City and some touring in that area for however long we need. We will rent a call in this area to sightsee as I don't think the RV will be too good for traveling here.
Leaving Rapid City and heading west on 1 90 to the Bighorns where we will spend a day or so in Buffalo, Wy. Then on to Montana.
At this point we are not sure what we want to do in Montana. We like parks, hiking, museums, scenic drives, sightseeing. Eventually as we work our way thorough Montana we are thinking of picking up 200 in Missoula and taking 200 right into the area of Idaho where we are going....Sandpoint. This leg of the trip we will give 11 days.
We will work on the trip home after we get this half figured out!! We welcome any suggestions for routes, sites to see and explore, campgrounds, etc. We are not making any reservations ( which may be a mistake but we don't want to be tied to an itinerary that might end up unrealtisc) and are just planning on enjoying ourselves. We are traveling with our 2 min pins who are road savvy!
