    Default Need more info

    You will have to provide more info before anyone can help you out.

    You said that you didnt want to go too far. Too far from where? And what kinds of things do you want to see? What are your interests? What are you definitely NOT interested in? How old are you? (Is this a high school graduation or college?)

    You will have to provide some background info before anyone can help you out. :)

    Default all over this site

    This site is packed full of ideas and tips, especially for those who are heading out on the road full time.

    Knowing nothing about you, your friends, or your trip, except that you want to go camping do this trip after graduation, I'm not sure what more specifics we can provide.

    Look around what's here for some general ideas, and then if you still have specific questions, let us know.

    Looks like you'll be leaving from the St. Louis area. If so, I'd suggest a good camping trip would take you roughly down I-44 to visit some cool caves such as Meramec Caverns or Onandaga Cave State Park, then further southwest to the Buffalo River area of Arkansas, across northern Arkansas to Memphis for some blues music on Beale Street, then home either the quick way on I-55 or find a slow way through the hills of eastern Missouri.

    This plan doesn't take you too far, there are lots of places to camp in state parks, and the scenery is great.

    I may just have to visit Missouri myself this year and do this exact trip.

    Have fun, whatever you decide to do.
