I have read a lot of great posts regarding route choices east to west, but I want to get some specific advice regarding tent camping. My husband and I will be driving from Klamath Falls, OR to Athens, OH with our 15 year-old grandson next month. We have some flexibility in terms of time and we want the drive to be pleasant rather than a grueling push to "get there." We have made cross-country trips but never with a 15 year-old!
I am hoping for some advice about a route that will provide scenery and decent tent camping after a 300-400 mile day of driving. My preference is for trees, mountains and water but I realize that will not always be possible. Although we will eat from the picnic cooler to save money, I would also like to hear about any restaurants or roadside attractions that should not be missed.
Thanks for a great forum and all the combined wisdom it represents,
