There's a lot of great information from very experienced roadtrippers here about planning for a trip.
However, I'm not the planning type. What if the "plan" is to not have a plan? Any one done this?
I'll be setting out on a cross country journey with a general route of NY to Seattle, down the coast to San Diego, heading back East with a jag up to Salt Lake City, a possible stop in Alabama, a final stop on the Delaware coast and finally back up to NY. Just me, my three dogs, Maxine (my GPS), my truck and a 13 ft. Scamp trailer. Starting at the end of August. No schedule...whatever time it takes, it takes. Drive when I feel like it...stop when I don't. Decide on what places to see/visit based on what I feel like at the time. Same way with routes...some interstates but also sometimes the slow roads, depending on where I am and where I'm planning to go next.
I've been wanting to do this for many years and have finally got everything in place to do it.
I'm sure there is someone who has done something similar?
