Having read through some other posts I have seen that three months can get you a pretty decent loop trip of most places, is this still doable with 6-8 weeks without feeling too rushed? I might add that we will have a 9month old baby, so more frequent stops will be needed!
At the moment we are planning on beginning April arrival, but we're not wanting too much in the way of colder/winter weather, would we be best waiting for a beginning may arrival? We are open to which start off destination at present and would like to plan the start off destination to route to maximise on having the best weather! Any recommendations of where to start (obviously flight prices from the UK will have a part to play in the decision!). We're wanting to include both the west and east coasts and as much in between as we can, as many national parks as we can get to see. I have just bouhht a Rand McNally road atlas as it came highly recommneded on here, so I can get more of a plan in mind. We have a rough idea of a route we want to do, which at present started in maine and somehow ended in florida, but have since decided to rethink and try and get a loop trip done after seeing comments on here. So I'm a little back to the drawing board.
We're wanting to try and include: Maine, florida, washington, california, texas, mississippi, colorado, nebraska, carolina, missouri, minnesota. This is very vague I know, we're still in early planning stages! We have a few specifics listed already but these are the main areas we would like to pass through, although I am also wondering whether it is too ambitious or not?
In short, shall we wait until May to start rather than April? (we don't have the opportunity to leave it later than May to get 6-8 weeks in). For the times of year and weather, where would be best to start off and which areas should we try and leave until later in the trip.
Apologies for this post being all over the place, my mind is on overdrive!! Any general advice would be hugely appreciated!
