My wife and I are about to venture on our first road trip. Here is our plan. Comments/suggestions/questions please!
San Jose, CA -> Portland, OR
Portland, OR -> Salt lake City, UT
Salt Lake City, UT -> Denver, CO
Denver, CO -> Santa Fe, NM
Santa Fe, NM - > Phoenix, AZ
Phoenix, AZ -> San Jose, CA
Unfortunately, the more we get down to details, the more we feel that it may be too many places to visit in a 10-12 day trip.
Suggestions? Please recommend places (nearby places) to visit at the various locations.
Also, how are the weather conditions at this various locations? Can you also please recommend how we should be prepared for the trip? We do not plan to camp out much so I am guessing camping gear is not required. Also, what types of vehicles are recommended for such road trips? We plan to take a trip in a full size car, but some of my friends were suggesting that an SUV would be better. What do you guys think?
