My friend and I are planning a 2 week road trip from Il to Salinas CA the first 2 weeks of Oct. It will be 10 yrs since his wife passed and we are doing a memorial trip. I would like to make it an enjoyable time for both of us, but not sure of the logistics.
Have thought about renting the vehicle, anything from a van to a mini RV in order to make it more cost effective and comfortable.
Have never been over the road for this many miles and was looking for suggestions on best route this time of year, places to visit, stay overnight, etc.
I am familiar with camping, and RV's but have usually gone local, so not sure of how to go about setting this all up.
