Struggling with detail of trip. No reservations and we really prefer not to have any. Heading out June 1 and returning sometime in early Sept. Thinking for a ride to and around Alaska but not sure if we have enough time. Taking a small tent to help keep cost down. Retired country folks not super interested in city stuff. Ride safely! Now that sounds like a RIDE!
Just a couple of thoughts:. Thornton, Expect heavy traffic on the East coast and the larger cities. There is too many things to see from Boston to San Francisco to Mention on here. I will include things to see and do both in the North and South since you mention Vegas. The Mansions in Newport R. Avoid getting close to Chicago unless you want to actually see the city. If you google things to see in these states and have any questions feel free to contact me.
If you have questions about any of these place I would be happy to help.
