I have just been transferred by my job to Oregon and will be driving out with a uhaul over the span of 9ish days. I know it isn't a ton of time to see/do a lot, but my dad and I would like to see as mush as possible and do some cool things along the way too. We love great food and craft beer (not really into the high end/price stuff, just great tastes and things off the beaten path). We are debating camping for a few days on the trip, but haven't worked out those details yet. Here's the plan so far:
Day 1: Baltimore to Knoxville, TN (no particular reason for here besides distance and on route to future destinations)
Day 2: Knoxville, TN to St. Louis, MO via Nashville
Day 3: St. Louis, MO to Kansas City, MO (Friends in Columbia, MO so I wanted a shorter drive to hang out with them some, plus we love BBQ and have been to several in Kansas City before that we loved)
Day 4: Kansas City, MO to Denver, CO
Day 5: Denver, CO to Salt Lake City, UT (originally wanted to drive through Yellowstone since I've never been there, but I read that the south entrance is closed to normal traffic until late April)
Day 6: Salt Lake City, UT to Boise, ID (again, recognizable city name somewhere close to the desired distance in a day)
Day 7: Boise to Corvallis, OR
I've built in an extra day for now because I'm sure someone will come up with a great idea for me and that will take us another day off the plan, but that's fine by me! We're leaving on Saturday morning 3/22 and my dad just has a flight to catch on Monday morning 3/31, so for the last Day I'd love to be there around dinner and not too late.
I'm open to any an all suggestions that anyone has for us!
