You mentioned national parks - be sure to look at Corps of Engineer Parks as well as national parks.

Harvest Hosts is an option, too, for one-night stays. A nice change of pace at selected vineyards, farms, orchards, breweries & distilleries, etc. I'll be hitting a dairy creamery -- think ice cream -- next month in Michigan.

A whole year of 2-3 or 1 night stays? and your wife agrees with this travel plan? Sorry, had to ask. IMHO, you will be so sick of traveling and miss so much of this great country. Well, good luck and travel safe. Other posters have given you great discount ideas.

Three nights for us is a long time in our book.

Large cities will take up that much time to explore but we move quite a bit.

The USA is a big place and you have to keep moving to see it all.

Different strokes for different folks I guess.

We use KOA, Passport and Good Sam's. That gives us alot of options. You have to be careful with Passport. Always call ahead, because we have found several CG's no longer participate and Passport continues to list them in their directory. There are also restrictions, and each campground is different. Enjoy your trip and safe travels.

Actually I am the wife.

We would love to have more time but family obligations will require us to stay in one place - we have managed to carve out 1 year to travel. After that we will be mostly limited to a week or less at a time.

If we decide we are pushing too hard we will revise the plan but we like to travel and are looking at it as the ultimate trip. We are making a list of places we feel we must see and will do our best to get to most of them. Major destinations will get longer stays so we can explore a bit; some places will just be a night spent on the way to somewhere else.

You're right about different strokes - I'm assuming that hiking in parks will be our biggest use of time - exploring cities, not so much.

But we'll probably get a bit of both and with luck we will be able to revisit some places in the future.
