The first thing, being from Ohio, is to AVOID the Chicagoland area. Take the advice about using the "Southern" route going "out". If you are in Northern Ohio, drop down to I70 to St. Louis. [don't forget the "arch'].. then I 40 west. The Ozarks are a pretty ride, then the "rolling hills of Oklahoma".. all so beautiful. Plenty of "side trips" to take. The 32 oz, steak house in Amarillo is a neat place . Grants and Gallup NM have wonderful side trips.. Then head North, come back along I 90, or I94, so much to see and do..Then go "over" the top oh Lake Michigan, or back down to I 70.. AVOID CHICAGO..too much stress and tolls. Have a wonderful trip. keep us posted on your intentions.

We have done this three times 2007, 2008, & 2009. We leave Georgia in the latter part of August. If you can, try to not go in June and July. The parks are jammed with people and their kids who are out of school. We go up to I-90 and across to Rapid city. then Devils tower, Buffalo and on to Cody. From Cody you can go by car to Yellowstone, The beartooth Hwy, Chief Joseph scenic hwy, and Buffalo Bill museum. Next to Glacier national park. Down to Richfield, Utah, Panguitch, and Kanab. From those three towns you can day trip to Capitol Reef, Grand staircase- Escalante, Brice Canyon, Zion, The north rim of the grand canyon. Down to Las Vegas and the dam. Over to Williams AR and the south rim of the grand canyon. Etc. I like to call every State I am going through and request a map and travel guide. It makes planning a trip much easier. Also tell them you are camping and want camping information. If you start out north and work south, the weather will be nice. We took a little over two months to make the trip.

We use the Good Sam trip planner . It gives you just about everything a rv ' error needs. List most of the points of interest and all the RV campsites you might need . We have been using it for two years and it really works well for us.
