Let me first say, this is a great forum! I've read lots of useful information here.
Our summer 2008 vacation is exactly as the title says: we want to venture from Georgia to Arizona and back in our Jeep Wrangler and we have 17-days to complete the trip.
Our goal is to visit the Grand Canyon and hit the back country trails around the Flagstaff area in our Jeep. We've decided to establish our home base in Flagstaff. We may do a few overnight camping trips in and around the Grand Canyon area.
First off, we've allowed 4-days of driving to AZ and 4-days of driving back to GA leaving us with 9-days for adventure. Does this sound reasonable? Should we allow additional time for driving or will we get there sooner?
More questions to come...
