My husband's biggest dream has always been to take a road trip out west. He was recently retired with a medical dissability, and I would really like to make the absolute most of this trip. We have plans to take 6 weeks next summer(late June) towing our fifth wheel camper. Our thoughts are to take route 2 across the northern states, possibly spend a week with our grandchildren in Seattle, then travel south on highway 5 to highway 40 taking the southern states across to Cookeville, TN where we plan to relocate to. We have not been to any of the states west of Michigan via road trip, we have flown to Seattle so we have missed alot in between.
I'm sure we will see many spectacular sites along the way, but as I mentioned, I really want to make the most of this trip, we don't want to miss any of the "must sees" if at all possible.
Is a six week time frame reasonable?
Is late June late enough in the year to avoid road closures through the mountains?
Any suggestions on campgrounds along the way?
I am just beginning to look into this, any suggestions will be very much appreciated.
