Joe (ninos):

Gotta agree with others above, 3-4 weeks for round trip from NJ to Calif. and back isn't a great idea, particularly if you'd like to explore sights along the way. DON'T DO IT!!

Give your wife a treat, do a more relaxing trip. She'll love ya for it . Think about a drive out to the Black Hills of S. Dakota. Once there, park your rig, then sit back and R E L A X!! Smell the pines, enjoy the mountains. Use your tow vehicle to poke around....LOTS of neat things to see and do, from Devils Tower to Deadwood, to Rushmore, to Needles Highway, to Custer Wildlife Loop, etc. etc. ALL reachable during easy, day tours from most any campground ya might pick as your home base.

You have to remember that “out west” many of the counties are larger (in sq miles) than some eastern states. WY is about 400 miles E to W, NE is over 400 miles E to W, KS is over 400 miles E to W and UT is also 400 miles N to S etc.
When we go to AZ for the winter and to avoid the Salt lake area we go thru central NV, when we leave Wells, NV the next fuel is 106 miles! Obviously I detest crowded I ‘state /State Highways, my idea of a nice drive is getting passed by one vehicle and meeting 3 other vehicles every 20 miles or so is nice driving. So you have plan your fuel stops/driving times accordingly.
I agree with most of the other posters- coast to coast and back in 3 weeks can be done however, you will see the country thru the windshield from behind the steering wheel!
