My bf and son (who is almost 2.5 yrs old) want to take off on a road trip, its our dream and we figure we are gonna grab the bull by the horns, and go for it. Gotta live life to the fullest right?
We are comtemplating a 2 - 3 month trip, but that could be extended if we are enjoying ourselves. (I am currently looking into the requirements of canadians coming to visit over such a long period.)
Well here's a bit more background on us, and then to my ???...
We are avid "tent" campers. But we are currently in the middle of purchasing a VW Vanagon (with small fridge/stove, bed etc.), in prep for our big trip. We have a black lab & also a cat that we will be bringing with us.
1. Are we Crazy? Is this going to be too overwhelming do u think? Anyone have any experiences like this?
2. We are coming from BC Canada. Our plan was to drive down the west coast of the USA - start in Washington, through the south, over to Florida (I wanted to go to NO, so sad..) then back up the east coast & through Canada. For the portion through the USA, we wanted to camp most of the time, thinking that will save us money. Are there any listings for campgrounds that have showers?
3. How long should a drive like that take (at least USA portion)? Are we giving ourselves enough time to stop & enjoy ourselves sometimes?
Anything you have to offer is awesome. Thanks in advance!
