Been using google to try and plan our summer trip to the USA, there will be 3 adults and two kids all eager to get away from not so sunny Scotland for a month in the kids summer holidays and we are planning on seeing as many of the national parks as we can sensibly fit in.
Will be flying into San Francisco at the end of June and leaving from Los Angeles 1st week in August, apart from a hotel for a couple of days at the start and one night at the end we are looking to be travelling around in an RV and seeing the sites!
Trouble is there seems to be so many great parks to see trying to decide on which ones to do and which ones to miss out is getting hard and the "to do" list is getting longer and longer. Totalled up the mileage today with the current list courtesy of google maps and its just over 5,000 miles.
Long road trips, over shorter periods, are nothing new to us but this will be the first time in an RV and as its to be a once in a lifetime trip for all of us to the USA we want to make sure that we enjoy as much as we can, but also make sure that we dont try and do too much.
The mileage doesnt seem to much to me, seeming as how its spread over the course of a month, and presumeably plenty to see and do along the way. What do you more experienced RV'ers think?
Any "must do" places that we can see on the suggested trip route that you can suggest?
Thanks for any input.
