Hmm - I think you might have a problem fitting that much luggage into an Aveo.

Looks like I have ventured too far off the planning a summer road trip section.
John, historically we move any trip longer than 30 days to this section of the forum -- Doesn't matter what time of year it's planned for. That way, it doesn't get lost in the shuffle as much and long-term road trip enthusiasts members can keep track of the longer trip planning threads easier.
Yes, you'll always be able to find your thread here -- It's a sticky and we can all look at it as we have time to comment.
Forums are going to sleep in 8 minutes....
Just a thought if someone would like to comment.
We have started planning our trip starting in mid June and finishing around mid to late August. Just been watching the temperature in the USA at the moment and getting pretty hot in some places.
Our intention was to start at LA and head up into Canada for the Calgary Stampede then Montana, South Dakota and across through the the centre to New Orleans etc and back through Arizona etc and back to LA. A lot of desert dry country.
Would it work to start say in early to mid May and do the trp in reverse and end up at Glacier NP late June and then go to Calgary / Canada and work our way back down through Washington, Oregon and California to Yosemite and back to LA.
Just a thought.
It's certainly something I would consider. [Well, do actually.]
Basically, we try and avoid travelling in July and August as much as possible. The heat is a big consideration, but for us it's more about missing the busiest of the summer crowds and we usually plan to have travelled before the beginning of July or anytime from mid September. Of course it's not so easy to plan when on an extended break with other weather issues to cater for, such as arriving to Glacier too early, but I think it could work well for this trip..
Thankyou for confirming my thoughts. Last year we arrived in early May and left mid June and never got too busy. A lot of the places were just opening and Yellowstone was partially closed.Still it was beautiful.
Calary Stampede isnt a neccessity so if I miss it well so be.I dont want to be rushing to get there on a set date but will allow plenty of time. Ill continue with the planning going the opposite direction. Im hoping 8 weeks will be enough time.We can always have trip #3.
