Ah Youth! DW and I share equally at the wheel too. We just completed nine month 17k trip around the continent. The last haul was Yellowstone to Madison Wisc where we took our first multi night break. We only drive 6 hours in a day, but then we are retired and in no hurry.

We are often dry campers when running long haul. Over night stops in WalMarts and Bass Pro or Cabelas work for us. Actually the sporting goods stores are great because they provide their own entertainment. We have not traveled in an RV with kids since '76 so have no idea what your trip with your brood would be like. We take one grandchild at a time for a few days within a one day drive of their home. Fun for them and us and they don't wear us out too much.

DO NOT, under any circumstances, skip the petrified forest. You will always regret it if you do. It may not seem impressive at first but when you consider the history and geology, it is truly a treasure.

You have a great trip planned but a bit aggressive in terms of miles per day between stops. Your itinerary will be tiring.
