I've been looking at the forum posts and have found a gold mine of information here. I have two college age "Kids" and am looking at this summer being my last chance to get them on the road for any length of time. As I am coming into an inheritance, we will be purchasing a Class C RV for this trip. We will be pulling a Tahoe hybrid.
There are four dates we need to hit that are, as yet, unknown: 1. the inheritance needs to be settled, any time between April and July (am really hoping April) 2. Training for both "kids" in Toronto for two weeks, I will be staying with my sister-in-law in Gaylord, MI during that time, 3. Meeting eldest dtr and her family in NC to meet son-in-law's family and take granddaughters back up to see DC and Williamsburg. Since they are flying in, we need to know about when we'll reach that leg of our journey. And, 4 back home to Los Angeles before "kids" start back to school.
Since I am recently lost my husband, I am now alone in the planning of this grand road trip. This is sort of a National Park/Historic sites/ visit friends and family trip. My daughter requests we hit all of the lower 48 (we've been to Alaska and Hawaii so this will be awesome) and son requests we not be in too much of a hurry.
We also need to get to Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Quebec. I plan on staying in NY with friends for a few days and in NC for about five to seven days with day trips to the west of there. That's it, that's all that is planned. I have no idea how to get through the states and what are the must see sites. I have all the AAA books, and plan on staying in RV parks almost exclusively. I am open to any and all suggestions for this trip.
Fortunately, both kids like history, love the national parks and are good travelers as well as being alternate drivers. We've traveled often, up and down California, and to and from Michigan, but this will be a huge endeavor. I will be planning this is "legs" but haven't even figured that out since we're adding all 48 states in!
Thanks for any and all suggestions, from routes to must see sites!
