My unemployed husband decided TODAY that maybe we should use this time off to drive across the U.S. And go....Monday!
I am so overwhelmed and don't have much time to read all different blogs, etc. I'm trying as best I can, but don't know where to begin! I want to see a lot, but don't have much time to weed through "do this and not that". Your help is greatly appreciated.
We live in NJ and are heading out to San Francisco, where we can visit his brother and family.
We have kids 12, 11 & 9. We drive our minivan with no tv on long drives all the time. Our kids are great and don't mind it at all.
We leave early in the morning and put hours under our belt before they rise. Usually people book this trip of a lifetime a year in advance, but I have 6 days.
We are thinking of heading toward Notre Dame College, then Madison Wisconsin, on our way to Mount Rushmore. Drive down to Denver and then see the Grand Canyon for the first time. Then go through Vegas on our way to San Fran.
We have NEVER rented an RV before and not sure if we would like it. Thoughts? A lot of work? Can it be gross b/c used by others? SUggestions??
Also, places to see along the way....All VERY Much apprecaited! Thanks!
