Im 22 and my boyfriend 26 want to go on a road trip to visit friends in Oregon and norther California. We live around Springfield ILL. We were wanting to know some fun places to go along the way and need any advice you might be able to offer for our long journey. We really enjoy camping, nature, drinking, shopping, eating out, and history! There hasn't been much planning going on yet. I have no idea which route we will go. I'm just looking for advice of any kind to start putting this idea into reality.
