What is the best way to figure out how much time we will need for our trip? We plan on driving from Kenosha, Wi. straight to the Grand Canyon then to the Four Corners monument and also to see some family in Greeley, Co. for a couple days we will be taking turn's driving 4hrs. at a time between my husband and I. Napping while the other drives. We have two kids, 15 G & 11 B. We are also bringing our 7yr. old yellow lab. We would love to camp but think that might be pushing it with time. We have 10 days(with a couple on the back burner for emergencies), there and back. We usually map out corky landmarks/monuments to stop at when we take our fill up breaks but this time we are going to try and hit some of the diners drive-ins and dive restaurants for when we need to stop and eat. Im not sure if we should go south then west, north then back east or do do the other direction circle. or just do as mapquest says go west then south and reverse the same way?
Roadtrippers seems to be a good site. I just haven't figured out how to change the route without pulling the white dots and messing up the map.
what other site could you recomment. We are also a retired Navy family. Not sure if there are any cheaper facilities for that reason.
Thank you for reading my frustration's. I hope i made some sense in what I was trying to ask. This is my first post to this site.
