Hey guys, my family ( me, wife 8 year old son and 3 year old son) are from the UK, and we have wanted to do a once in a lifetime roadtrip for quite a while now. We have started to preliminaryly look at going next July 2013. We do go to Florida quite a bit, so we have decided to start our road trip in Key West. From there, up to naples for a day. Then to Orlando for a few days to do the parks. From there New Orleans, Baton Rouge, houston, Austin, Grand Canyon, Death Valley, LA, Vegas, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle. From here, we want to dropoff the rental and go over to Vancouver to spend a few days. From here, my parents, who live outside Whistler, would pick us up and we would stay with them for a week.
Excluding the week with my parents, we want to take 4 weeks for the road trip. Now I have done a quick google maps plan, and itis coming out at 4500 miles. As we are at the absolute start of planning, I have no idea on how to plan motel breaks, daily distances etc. Even what awesome sights to see on the way (hopefully the worlds biggest ball of string). The one thing I would also like to do is to go to some of the places that have featured on Man versus Food too :-)
Any help or ideas with our very first draft of a road trip would be much appreciated. Is 4 weeks enough / too much??
Thanks in advance
