I'm planning an epic road trip from Maryland to Yellowstone to Florida and back to Maryland.
For the first major leg of my trip, I was looking at hotel rooms and rates along the way. Hotwire offers steeply discounted rooms ($48 for a 2.5 star hotel) on the date I'm making my first stop, but I'm wondering if I should just wait till the day of.
So my question is... do you book in advance or do you wait till you are ready to stop?
And is it unreasonable to expect to get a tent site in one of the first-come first-serve campsites for someone with a tent Jun 27-Jun 30 time frame? I really don't want to have to come and go from the park to get it all in a few days.
