Hello! I will be an empty nester as of Aug 25, my husband works in the HVAC business and we can't travel until around Oct 11-20, thats the plan anyway. We want to do a road trip from Dallas, to Santa Fe, To Colorado Springs. We would like to camp some (tent camping) and motel some. I have no clue what to do... everything seems very overwhelming. I just need some suggestions, guidelines, etc. Can we just go or do I need to plan everything out carefully and make reservations etc? Would REALLY appreciate some help.
