My boyfriend and I are planning a three week roadtrip in August. We initially wanted to do a Boston-south-grand canyon-Boston loop, but after reading several posts, we realized we might be too ambitious given our time frame. Since I really want to see Arizona/Colorado, and he really wants to see the deep south, we have decided to pick one region: either fly to SF and looping through AZ, CO, UT, or cover the south eastern states from Boston.
We would like to camp as much as possible.
I am surprised that there are nearly no posts regarding the south. I did find one post from a Carolinian saying how hot it gets down there in the summer, and that August was the worst month. My question is: is it that people don't go to the south because it's so hot, or simply it's not that much of an attraction to roadtrippers? Will we survive camping three weeks in that weather?
I would assume that AZ is probably as hot as the south, although probably humidity makes the great difference comfort-wise. Or is it that it's also crazy to consider camping in Arizona?
Thanks a lot!
