My wife and I love long road trips in a mid-size SUV. This past summer we drove from Tampa to Seattle and back, last year Tampa to Chicago and then Route 66 to Santa Monica, and the year before that from Tampa to Nova Scotia. Never for any particular reason, we just love traveling the country. Trips have taken six weeks and covered almost 12,000 miles each. No problem.
For 2016, we're considering driving to Anchorage Alaska, either diagonally across the U.S. (again) or straight up to Canada and then across through Winnipeg and Calgary. Never been there.
Any thoughts? Anyone done this? Are we bonkers? We travel well together and both hate flying- you don't see from 35,000 feet up what we see from the windshield of a car.
If you have any thoughts or suggestions, we're open to all. Thanks.
