Hello everyone :)
Hope you're all well.
I'm posting on here in the hope of some sage advice and 'local knowledge' - and it seems this is the best place on the net to find it!
My mother unfortunately passed away a few years ago, and my Dad hasn't been doing too well (he's 68 and suffers from anxiety). I've tried lots of ways to help him cope, but it seems that the last remaining (and hopefully best) solution will be to take him on a road trip.
We live in Northern Ireland, and have never been to the US before.
I was thinking of travelling in Jan/Feb (when I can take the most time away from my job), and hopefully to somewhere warm and beautiful - it seems that the West coast drive and California is the best choice?
I'd like to be travelling for two months (I think he needs a long trip away to rebuild himself), but that might end up at six weeks.
As I mentioned, I have absolutely no knowledge of the US... temperatures, best routes, etc... To be honest, this is the very first step of this journey, and I'm rather nervous about it all!
So... I was hoping... could you recommend a road trip in the US during Jan/Feb that will be not too cold (we're from Ireland, so 20c (or 68 fahrenheit) is fairly warm for us!), not too taxing, but beautiful with plenty of distractions... and any hints/tips or ideas about where I can hire RVs, where I can park them etc?
I'm sorry if these are all newbie questions that you get asked a hundred times a day!
And thank you so much for your time and patience.
