This is a great thread for me since I haven't taken even 1 long trip yet. I've been fixing up my motor home and I'm almost ready to plan my first trip over 200 miles. Thanks to all who respond here!

If in Washington, a must see is Mt St Helens. A view from Johnson Observatory give you the feeling of being so very small. The power of God is overwhelming here.

You have the right idea - plan your trip by the season. A few favorites:
Southern Utah (both East and West side)
Devils Tower
Skyline Drive (Spring time if you like black bears, Fall if you like follage)
Ask folks where you camp where their favorites are and modify your trip as you go.

DW and I laugh because we tell everyone that I like the "Motor" part and she likes the "Home" part. I tend to think of the great parts of Canada and the U.S. that I have driven as much as the great places we have been and seen. Two outstanding drives, for me, is I-17 south from I-40 to I-10 (breathtaking) and I-8 through the bottom of CA to San Diego (I'll never forget it) .... I suggest you work the I-17 drive in so that you're going South, which is downhill ... uphill would be a killer and cost a fortune in fuel. It really doesn't matter how you work these into your trip because you will see nothing but continued wonder(s) all the way along your route. Have fun.

On I-8 in Imperial County Slab City....You will not believe it.

Go to Quartzsite AZ. That's worth price of admission maybe an "E" Ticket Ride @ Disneyland.
Then if you want to see some beautiful country, drive up U.S. 395 from I-15 to the Canadian Border.
Maybe go to Yosemite for some breath taking views drive up Ca SR 120 over Tioga Pass a little steep though.

I SECOND THIS, BIG TIME !!
We were there two years ago on the summer opening nite for the Lighting Ceremoney. What with the patriotic music and the drama of the lights coming up and at the end they asked all the veterans in the audiance to come down to help strike the colors. It was as moving a ceremony as I have ever witnessed. If you like this sort of thing and get moved, bring tissues or better yet, a mop. It is great.

So did we! The road is narrow and we sure scared some folks along the way.

Don't forget the Colorado Rockies and if you can handle the heights the San Juan Skyway from Ouray, Silverton, Durango,to Tellurude will take your breath away. If you have time stay in Ouray, rent a jeep and visit the old mining camps. Like someone said we have a lifetime of places to visit in this great country. Sounds like a great trip.

Cue song: This land was made for you and me. I would be hard pressed to pick one "must see" site, or even one in each state.. I like to talk about some of Michigan's better locations like the Falls in the UP (Speil clunk is not up to the name of them) or the shores of Lake Michigan, or the Sand Dunes, or.. Or,,, Or.. Well it's a lovely state.

Internet TV show, "The coolest stuff on the planet" as I recall.

Got to Miro - Free, open-source music and video player. Download and install the proper version of the program and subscribe.. they tour the world, but they have covered Salem, MA and Ashville, NC I've been to Ashville.
