We let there temperature guide us on our trips with a general idea of correction. In your case north then possibly west. Remember your house is where you are. The east coast this time of year, maybe, but most likely not. Central, Great Lakes, into Canada, remember no hand guns, or just west to Yellow Stone and Grand Tetons then on to Glasier. If you still have weather by this point further west or north to Banff. Then turn to Washington, the Olympic peninsula, Mount Rainer, Saint Helen's. By now your weather should be turning make your way to the desert SW for the winter. Need more just look at the computer nightly for things to do where your home is at that time. Don't rush anything you have time.

Full-time RVers typically leave their winter roosts around March or April and SLOWLY head toward northern routes. . . some east to west (leaving in March is ideal) and some south to north (leaving toward the end of April). Above all, elevation is the key to staying cool in summer. When it's getting too cool - usually mid-October they start heading to their winter roost once again. You'll get the hang of it.

Relax. Take your time. Follow good weather to never be hot or cold.
Let the Journey be Your Destination.
FYI, blueberries are best in ME in mid August, and fresher and cheaper 50+ mile East of Bah Hawbah.

As has been repeated, "Get out of the vacation mode!!" You have the rest of your life to travel. Don't stop and smell the roses--- stop and watch them grow.

As to where to go, I would head for the west coast by a northerly route. Then, slowly go south through the summer. Spend the winter in southern California or Arizona.

What ever you do, enjoy yourselves. Try to find the beauty in everything from the grandest vista to a single wildflower.

The key there is *slowly*. You may get out of the high rent districts but you do not want to be very far north on either the east coast of central US before April/May. You may still get snow in VA and north. OTOH summer swelter places like Georgia can be pleasant. ;-) The central US is just about run out of Tornado season now. ;-)

I second Minnesota! (Biased because we live in neighborly North Dakota) but besides up in the Duluth & up the North shore area (which is incredible) you also have Itasca state park which is really cool. It is where the Mississippi river begins. you can actually walk across it!! Really nice state park

Part of our travel destinations are based on the tornado and hurricane seasons.

We've been in both and now avoid them like the plague.

This is the rule of 3 buddy I was telling you about

Also, I had no idea that Maine was the blueberry capital until I went there.

Everyone's right, you'll rush around at first, but that will wear off. Just point the nose of the bus in a direction, and have at it

This is a great thread for my wife and I too. As we have both retired recently and are out to explore the country for a while too. Our home has been leased for a year beginning in August. So, I am working to get the toad and everything else ready for the road trip as we also pack up our furnishing for storage. We too, haven't decided just which direction to go - other than north. To save some on expenses, we plan to frequent the National and State Parks.
