Trip planning software?
I've searched and found lots of discussion about parts of my issue, but nothing that really addresses my total need for a comprehensive trip planning software for RVing....I am looking for software where I can put in my departure, and my ultimate destination and have it propose multiple routes and stops within a bunch of parameters I would like to set (like length of each leg per day), type of parks I like to stay in, etc), and have it suggest stops and routes that will offer the most number of interesting sites that appeal to RVers.
Right now, I (really my DW...more on this in a bit) have to do this all manually, using about 5+ reference guides and work my through the trip day, by day, stop by stop. It all relies on me knowing what interesting stops I want to see, based on reading magazines, etc. Surely by now someone has put together some planning software oriented to Rvers that actually works.
One interesting possibility I've seen is advertised here: RV Trip Wizard seems to approach what I am looking for. I rely on my DW for our trip planning....and as I'm sure you know, suggestions and changes are not welcome after she has spent hours and hours building a route step-by-step, hour by hour. It's a lot like editing a video movie....you have to take hundreds of hours of video, spend tens of hours editing to get one hour of viewable video. I hoping some entrepreneur had merged some databases and mapping software together and made trip planning intuitive. Yes? Suggestions?
