And if you do Canada, don't forget to head north. I highly recommend seeing aurora borealis from Yellowknife.

Drive the AlCan Highway for the adventure, but do a rental and take a train back south to Seattle. The Great Southwest is best in early Fall.

Yes we have already been to most of the flat states. I want a map that I can take this map and move pins around

Whatever RV you get - make sure it comes with the extra depth snorkel -- because it's a long drive to Hawaii................

Electronically, Google Earth can do that.

That's exactly what I'd like to do. I've been trying to find a map that will let me.

I also tend to plan everything which is why I think if I were to do anything like this I'd not plan a thing and just let it happen. Oh, and take a dog named Charley.

Garmin Basecamp. It's free, but useless without a Garmin. It also has a little bit of a learning curve. Still, it was designed for exactly your purpose. The trick to using it for long distance trips is that each leg has to be planned separately, then all the legs can be combined. I'm currently in the middle of planning a trip from Michigan to the Mt Rushmore - Little Bighorn area, to San Francisco, to Area 51, San Diego, Grand Canyon, and home.

RE: anyone rv around america?
You can rent an RV. Unless you're going to travel all the time most of the time that RV will sit in your driveway while you're making payments. The average cost of some of those motorhomes is around $100,000. It seems to me that a person could stay in a nice hotel while traveling and not have to deal with the upkeep and payments on one of those things.

My husband and I are going to travel to the Grand Canyon next summer. We're going in a car and staying in hotels along the way. I won't have to cook, sweep, make the bed, vacuum and especially empty the contents of one of those RV toilet tanks in an RV park. Even better, I won't have any reminders of the RV scene from Christmas Vacation movie.




Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: anyone rv around america?
My wife and I have been to every state at one time or another. We usually fly into a city, rent a car and then travel around the area seeing what we want to see and avoiding the places that don't interest us. I don't care to drive long distances anymore but I used to love the drive from Colorado Springs to Palm Springs, CA when my mother in law lived in Palm Springs. We would always spend a day or two at the Grand Canyon, hiking around and just playing there. One time, we drove it in late May and when we left Palm Springs to come home, the temp was 105 F. When we got to Colorado, we climbed up Wolf Creek Pass and there was snow 15 feet deep on each side of the road. Wolf Creek is one of the most beautiful places in Colorado and it's a hell of a contrast with the Southern California desert.
