My boyfriend and I are moving from NYC to the Bay Area in early March.
We've decided to purge our belongings & rent a minivan to make the move, so just our "necessities" will make the move with us. We're on a tight budget, and would like to make the trip about a week, squeeze in some nature & if possible no more than 8 - 9 hours of driving per day.
I realize great weather the whole way is impossible, but we're thinking of a southern route so as to avoid any inclement late winter weather through Ohio, Illinois & Missouri, Kansas, etc.
Can anyone give us suggestions of a possible route, highlights, must-sees & great (cheap too) campgrounds?
Things We'd like to see along the way: Grand Canyon, neither of us have been to SW before.
Thanks & happy trails!
