This is my first post on this forum - thanks for the great resource!
We're relocating to Davis, CA (just to the west of Sacramento) from Marietta GA (just north of Atlanta) and we're planning on making the move a family roadtrip at the end of July. We will be 2 parents, 2 kids (3 and 6!) and grandparents traveling together in one vehicle - the parents and grandparents can all share in the driving duties.
Currently we're looking at the following route:
St Louis, MO
Sioux City, IA
Badlands National Park - visiting Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Devils Tower, etc in the Black Hills area of South Dakota
Yellowstone National Park (spending at least a full day in the park)
Then shortest route to Davis, CA (via Grand Tetons to I-80 across Nevada, Lake Tahoe)
Is this doable in 6-7 days - with 5 days of driving to allow for a day to explore the Black Hills/Badlands and another for Yellowstone?
I'll be updating the route during the next few days, but any comments and suggestions will be appreciated.
