Hi, I've done a couple of road trips in the past few years. I went from Atlanta to the Grand Canyon and back tent camping and hotels in a Corvette. Later in the year (November) I drove from Tacoma to Atlanta in a Miata tent camping and hotels. This time I'm considering a Spring road trip. I'd leave from Atlanta, GA and head to Seattle WA.
I no longer want to do tent camping as it can be complicated and uncomfortable (torrential rains in Sedona and Arkansas and bitter cold in Las Cruces). Anyway, setting up and taking down the tent and stuff each night and day is a pita. I don't want to purchase a camper to tow or motorhome so I am thinking to convert a minivan such as a late model Dodge Caravan to allow me to sleep in it and camp out of it as well as the occasional hotel/motel stay.
For me, photography is a real interest as well as seeing this beautiful country and its people. I'd like to take a route going North and taking I-90 or I-70 west and perhaps return again through CA, turning left in San Diego and perhaps see Big Bend in TX of even take some detours in AZ, NM, etc.
I have thought also to take the ALCAN highway to Anchorage... I hear that's really a Nature observing drive LOL!
Anyway, I'd like to hear your advise and input. I'll probably travel alone, I'm a retired guy but in generally good shape. I can manage the time required and probably the expenses as well. But I still would welcome advise and ideas.
