We've done some longer trips on a shorter time frame and have enjoyed every one of them! We pick our end sight/destination and plan to get there. We see a fair amount on the way, but don't have 4+ weeks at a time to make a sight seeing holiday of it.

Trip

I do not have to push it, and we enjoy it more when we give ourselves enough time to learn the area we are in. Leaving Door County, Wisconsin tomorrow after 8 beautiful days. Great place to stop and smell the cherry and apple pie. We did the "Cram as much as possible into a week" when kids were younger. Worked hard and planned so we could retire and take longer trips.

Looks like you just missed Kansas by about a thousand feet.
That’s one of the best things I love about RVing – you can set whatever pace you want because you’re FREE. That said, I bet you’re pondering some of the places you went and thinking “ I’d like to go back there and spend some time”.

Sounds like a great trip, glad you enjoyed. We did one similar a few years back in a 5er. Me the DW and our St Bernard. 7700 miles in 39 days so same miles just smelled a few more roses on the way. From MN to southern Cal then up to Washington then headed back on the Northern route. Made many memories and we will go back to the places we liked the most.
We started out pushing it then we decided to follow the 222 rule and life really slowed down for us. Glad you had a great time and you’ll talk about it for years to come.

You could spend 26 days in any of the states you traveled through. I like heading somewhere with no real destination in mind.

Our 50th Anniversary Awesome Adventure this summer covered 5,850 miles, 20 campgrounds (all COE and USFS), five fewer states, and took 10 more days to allow for R&R from driving, sightseeing, family visits, etc. Won't do it again, but sure glad we did it between mask requirements and lock-downs. Who knows when we'll have that chance again!

Our route took us about 1650 miles in a week stopping at 3 different CGs along the way easy travel. Spent 2 months up there traveling around NE spending time with family and friends then back home basically the same way exploring at each CG stop. Great time. Thanks for sharing. Our plans next year is put to the midwest similar to your placds.
Don't miss Kansas. We met the nicest people and saw some of the most amazing places -- Leoti for the Museum of the Great Plains; Lindsborg for a taste of Sweden; Victoria for the magnificent Cathedral of the Plains; Lucas for the "unique" Garden of Eden and the amazing mosaic covered public restroom (you have to see it to believe it). The latter two attractions are easily accessed from the lovely Corps of Engineers Sylvan Park campground on Wilson Lake. For other highlights PM me.

The wife and I did 7,000 miles the first 2 weeks of May with a million times the memories.



Congrats on a successful and memorable trip.

21 of 28 nights in the bag. I could get used to this. Will be going west over the rockies today including Highwood Pass, the highest paved pass in Canada at over 2200M.

That’s a lot of miles and a lot of stops!!! We just got back from a long trip ourselves….left on July 30…returned on September 2. Dodge City (overnight), Tucmcari, NM (overnight), Santa Fe, NM (four nights),
Grand Canyon (four nights), Durango, CO (three nights), Pagosa Springs, CO (four nights), Pueblo, CO (overnight), Estes Park/Rocky Mountain NP (two weeks). Longest trip yet….should’ve cut down the time at EP as we were just there last September, and have been there before. Should have gone somewhere “new”, but all in all a good trip. Weather was good most of the time.
