I'm currently in the works of planning a road trip starting from central New York and ending up hitting the south rim of the Grand Canyon next summer, June 2016. I've mentally mapped out a timeline of three weeks, possibly a little longer if need be, and was just wondering if this is feasible.
Travel wise it would end up being myself, and most likely two friends at the most. We are all very willing to camp and save some money costs wise, if that is even an option. Honestly, none of us have ever done a cross country car trip this far or in depth before and all are novices at best and could use all the advice available.
Also, if anyone has traveled this way, what would be some typical spots to stop by? Also worth noting, we aren't all interested in theme park attractions as much as we are national parks, natural sights to see, what cities would be best to hang in for a while, etc. I know for a fact we want to take a little extra time and also wander Utah and Colorado before/after hitting the canyon, but again, this is only the beginning and as of now our research has been at a minimum and we haven't really made exact plans for specific spots to stop.
Thanks in advance!
