My husband and I are planning to drive from PNW to NY this summer to see family and then take a week or so to make our way to Utah where we'll spend the last days of our vacation. We'll be in our small SUV not a RV. I'm curious about driving thru some of our southern states and then making our way to Utah. Any suggestions on great routes? Also, considering looking into KOAs for less expensive overnight options? Ideas? And finally, I've been hesitant to book hotels olong the route because I wonder if we won't get a bit of the last minute wanderlust. Am I crazy?
