Hello folks Ė Iíve been quickly and suddenly planning a three-week road trip cross country. Itís a mother (53) and daughter (24) adventure. In a 2008 Honda CRV. The Grand Canyon isnít in this trip because weíve both seen it. Iíve been to Yellowstone but it so cool I would love to show it to my Daughter.
Iíve got some two-night stops so we can hopefully hang out and explore a few areas. Las Vegas got in there as a revision. My original hope was to go to SanDiego and then up the coast to San Francisco, but I cut that out for time and money. Threw in Las Vegas just for a place to hang out around a pool for a day and relax. We donít gamble, donít want to see shows Ö so I could hang out at a pool somewhere else happily if anyone has a better idea.
At various planning points I had some other things in here I would love to see Ö Yosemite, and Crater Lake. But theyíve come out.
My plan is to stay in hotels all the time. Just cause Iím getting older and want a bed for my back and figure after hours in the car I am not going to feel like pitching a tent.
Feels like I have us moseying through S.D. ...
My daughter and I both love to travel and get along very well on the road.
So, do any of you experienced folks have any comments on this plan? Any suggestions? Any better, prettier routes? I am kinda nervous about it, but excited. And folks keep saying DO IT! But I do worry about biting off more than we can chew. Hereís the plan, 23 days on the road:
Leaving Maryland mid-may
Asheville, NC staying two nights
Memphis - staying near Beale Street to hear a bit of blues
Oklahoma City - with a stop in Hot Springs, Arkansas that's been recommended
Santa Fe(Staying Two Nights)
Moab (Staying Two Nights)
Bryce Canyon Ė Stay In The Park
Las Vegas (Staying Two Nights)
San Luis Obispo
Big Sur (Staying Two Nights)
Yellowstone Ė In The Park
La Crosse, Wi
And Back Home
Thank you so much ... this is a great site.
