Our trip coming up

So we rented an RV to move from GA to CA. With a Yaris hatchback in tow.
Uber excited.
I 20 out to 22 up to Memphis and catching I40.
40 across, 99 up California

Guessing we are stopping in
TN or Arkansas,
Amarillo TX (may go to the palo duro canyon)
Winslow, AZ (meteor crater and painted dessert probably overnight at mc) traver, CA Bravo farms

Suggestions on campgrounds not far off freeways
Suggestiosn on cheap things to do
Going to be looking for indian jewlery as well
Since we are renting we have a 8 days to make the trip and limited milage. 2500 is pre paid. (refundable for not used)
I got a seperate trip insurance as well (not like rv ins, just trip in case somethign happens) Ins is covered in rental for rental.

I am so excited. Hope I can post from the road and wave hello! lol

Oh I am thinking abotu gettign a CB radio. they are like 15$ now. Any suggestions?

Santa Rosa, NM. There is a nice state park a few miles NW of town . IIRC, there is a "sink hole" near/in the town where the water is clear to a deep level. East of Holbrook there is the a Painted Desert/Petrified Forest Nat'l Park that can be driven in your rig. On the road into Meteor Crater there is a nice RV park.

By all means, check out Palo Duro Canyon if you get the chance...it's gorgeous. I don't know about the CB radio; if you're only renting the RV that might be a waste of money. Also, if you have cellphones you will have coverage most of the time on major interstates. Have fun and be safe.

The Blue Hole is Santa Rosa is nice and a fun place to relax for the afternoon. There is a couple of places in Tucumcari too that are on the Old Route 66. Tucumcari has cool neon lights and route 66 (which is Main Street) has building painted with historical scenes.

There is a cool large truck stop between Amarillo and Tucumcari that you can stop and look at a huge old car collection if you need a break.
In both towns the RV parks are just off the freeway.

Here is a pic of one of the Neon's in Tucumcari.

On I40 you will be going thru Williams, AZ gateway to the Grand Canyon. Worth a stop if you haven't seen it. You can leave the RV in Williams and either drive the Yaris up, or take the Grand Canyon Railroad.

We've stayed at Amarillo Ranch on the eastern side of Amarillo and it is reasonable and a Passport America Park. We've stayed at High Desert just west of Albuquerque is also reasonable and only about 9 miles from ABQ if you want to shop turquoise and other Indian style items. My wife loves it.
