Hi everyone. I plan to do a roadtrip from Buffalo, NY to Seattle, WA the second week of September. Basically a 7 day trip, if I could do it in 5-6 days even better. I plan to make stops to Chicago, IL, Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone (for Old Faithful), and most likely Spokane, Wa. Any other recommended stops that aren't too far out of the way? anyone know of good/safe campgrounds during this trip to save money on lodgings (mainly between chicago, Il and spokane, Wa). I'm pretty new to the big road trip thing. So the only extra things I can think of to prepare maybe a GPS, tent, cooler, AAA membership, and possibly a spare container of gas (or is this probably being too careful). Anyone yeah sorry i'm real new, just doing my homework. cheers.
