The map/route/trip isn't finished yet, but the basic plan is to loop back through Kansas and some others come spring/summer. I'll hit Kansas- just need ideas for what is there. All I know of is that my wife's aunt lives somewhere there.

Thanks. That's a bit cooler than I was hoping for. Giving up a prime month in summer is killing me!

I'll fix you up there. You are going to miss out if not going either more NW into the Ozarks or SW into Hot Springs or Petit Jean.

I'll send you some emails later on.

The problem I'm having everywhere is the extremely limited time at each destination. While we are there for a week, we only really have 2-days for sightseeing. Mondays are to be our travel day to get from one location to the next and Tuesday-Friday, I have to work 10-hour days.

Ok, I had my fun. I'm a computer programmer- specifically I develop web-based business applications. I have a normal, salaries, 9-5 job. For my first 7 years on the project, I worked full-time on-site. When the company lost the contract and the next contractor picked me up, their office is like 50-miles from my house across and it's horrific traffic, so they let me work from home full time. We have people in southwest Virginia, North Carolina, and most recently opened an office in Louisiana plus a multitude of people who work from their houses all over. About 4 years ago, I got our pop-up camper and worked from that. It worked well enough and set the precedence that I could get my work done working from "non-traditional" locations.

Best CG near Atlanta is Stone Mountain Park.

Plenty to do, the aforementioned Stone Mountain, Six Flags on the other side of Atlanta, in Atlanta is the World of Coke, The High Museum, Oakland Cemetery if you like old cemeteries, the state capital tour is nice, Jonesboro south of town does a Return to Tara tour based off of Gone With the Wind, plenty of touristy old towns to visit, and the mountainous areas of north Ga are within reach.

Depends on how far you want to reach out from base camp.
