My husband and I are in the preliminary stages of planning a road trip fromwest KY to CA. Neither of us have ever been west of OKC so we're really wanting to find a route with several neat things to see/do while we're heading west. (that's the whole point of driving instead of flying) We have about 3 weeks total and want to visit at least a couple of his relatives in Ft. Worth & Tulare, CA. We have another relative in Eugene, OR but figure that the weather may be too unpredictable to head that way. We also don't plan to spend more than a couple days at each of their homes.
We aren't impressed with big cities and really crowded places (hint...don't care to go to Vegas)...aren't physically able to do rafting/mountain climbing...but we love the outdoors, history and good food. We'd love to fit in some of the natural wonders like maybe the Grand Canyon or Redwood Forest...and we have to at least dip our feet in the Pacific one time. Would also like to head through Ft. Collins, CO on one leg of the journey too.
Any ideas from anyone with any knowledge of the weather/road situation & best routes during that time of the year?
