[QUOTE=BigDnRo;801610]Hi - we are beginning to plan a big trip for 2016 - traveling northwest from OH.

There is so much to see in this great country, hard to cover everything.

We went last year to Nebraska, edge of Wyoming, SD and back across to Ohio.
We saw a lot, missed a lot, going back soon to see again and see more!!

Stop at the Welcome centers of each state. Most are near the interstates, one was just off interstate in strip mall. Worth the effort to get to it. TONS of free information. Pick up the state booklets! They are beautiful full magazines with full color pics and most do the states in sections.They are worth their weight in gold. Lots of information about
the areas. Some states have county books also. One place in Nebraska, off the beaten path had lots of local info and also books of the area written by local authors. Always interesting to read.

Search for local campgrounds on the internet. We found many at lower prices that were just wonderful. I always read the reviews before we consider the campground.
We stayed at a campground in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, located in town, next to the city zoo!! $20 for full hookups!! Very nice and clean. And quiet. Heard the lion roaring in the morning!! (someone recommended it to me on this forum!)

Pick up any free booklets or pamphlets you see. Most are just the local tourist traps but some are out of the way places worth seeing.
And ask the locals at these welcome stations what to see. They can usually tell you of things of interest.

Take your time. Find an area you would like to visit and park and stay for a few days, then roam around in the TV.

The great land of ours is beautiful and so different from here in Ohio.

Also, I recommend seeing the Crazy Horse monument. Mt Rushmore is inspiring but very commercialized. Crazy Horse is so much more, wonderful story there plus a museum and an Indian college. Tons of history.
Camp in north edge of South Dakota, then take days trips down to Crazy Horse and Mt Rushmore. Also can see buffalo in the wild at Custer State Park. (highlight of our trip for my DH!)

Actually, 6 months might not be enough!!!!

Karen

PS am trying to talk DH into full timing for a year so we can go see more of this country!!

We will do something similar this summer in Wyoming and Montana. Wish we had time to go further into Montana.

Good luck with full timing! We hope to spend 6 months during the year in our motorhome.

I'll agree, Red Lodge and the Beartooth are a must see.

Re: Heading West in 2016

Hi, we have been travelling west for the past few years (from Mass.). We have stayed at Potters Creek Campground in New Braunfels, TX, very nice, great sites. Most of the places we stayed were without reservations and we always had great luck. In the New Mexico area we love Rockhound State Park in Demming, also City of Rocks State Park is very nice with unusual rock formations. In Arizona we loved the Lost Dutchman State Park in Apache Junction. There is a great scenic drive (Apache Trail) but I wouldn't recommend pulling a trailer or if you have a large motorhome on this trail. But it is great fun. We also stayed at Quartzsite, AZ, that was a great relaxing time. When we are on the road we usually pull into a WalMart (what a blessing they are). we also have stayed at many Flying J's - sometimes the noise is hard to take (only because we park in back with the trucks). Some rest areas will let you stay for 24 hours. We found that is you reserve at a State Park, the fee is larger than if you just 'walk in'. Hope you have a wonderful trip. We always do. Don't forget to watch the sunsets - they are spectacular.
