Hi all, new to the forum here, but VERY excited to be planning my first trip this coming fall. I plan on leaving around September (beginning to middle) and taking about 2 months to drive across the country (from VA/DC area to maybe Portland, or something?) and then back again.
I'd love to hear from people who might know of where to start. I've been looking at maps of where I want to go and I just have no idea. I am not very well traveled here with the exception of up and down the east coast, and parts of Cali. So - don't know a thing about the middle states.
As I said I will be coming from VA/DC area and wondering the best routes to travel (such as going across the top states and then coming down from OR through Cali and traveling back through the lower states?) I really have no idea. Colorado seems to be in the middle/middle and I feel like I definitely want to pass through there at some point! I just feel stuck. thinking of buying a giant map and just closing my eyes and sticking pins in various places. hah!
anyway, any help would be appreciated!
