We're taking our first long trip in the new Thor Hurricane 34E in 2 weeks from Little Rock, AR to Topsail Hill Preserve in FL. We have 2 full days to get there. It's a 10-hour Google Maps trip which I figure means 11-12 hours for me driving a little more slowly and time for meals, etc.
I offered my wife the choice of two stops, resulting in 3 short drive days, or one stop with two longer days. She chose the one stop.
We're looking for a place roughly halfway between LR and Topsail, although it doesn't have to be on the most direct route. Birmingham seems about in the middle, and I've been looking at Oak Mountain SP.
I know the answers are going to depend on the "what do you want to do" question, so I'll give some background if it helps:
Wife and I are early 40s with two boys, 8 and 6. We don't have any kind of toad set up yet and are looking for Class A-friendly activities and/or camping where we can enjoy ourselves right where we are or with minimal walking. Wi-fi a plus but not required. Pool likewise.
Any ideas from that mess of a request?
