NH to AK

We are starting our 6,000 mile trip this week from NH to AK in our newly purchased 2011 Forester 3171. Four adults, two grand kids, two dogs and a jeep toad. Wish us luck.

We have a 3 week time line starting with a stops at Niagara Falls, Bad Lands, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone and ever else we have time for.

This is our first real RV trip after a shake doown trip from NH to GA and back.

That's over 10,000 miles in 21 days (476 miles/day). Doesn't leave much time for sightseeing. What is the route for only 6,000 miles?

Top, did you realize he was an Officer?

Are you still sure you want to let him figure this out?
