Vacation Destination Ideas....
So I have july 9th through the 18th off from work and I had planned on going to Destin, FL with my best friend. Well the oil just washed up on Pensacola beach yesterday which isn't far from Destin so I believe my beach dreams have been shattered...
Oh well, that can't keep me down. I'm envious of people that have no set path and just wander around without a purpose. Sometimes I wish I didn't have a job so I could do that... Not sure how I would fund that with no money but don't piss on my parade! So I got the wild idea to load up my camping box, a bunch of clothes and hit the road with my buddy. Just let the wind carry us.
I think I want to head east from here (Arkansas) and maybe hit some of the top 4x4 spots that this country has to offer. I also want to see the beautiful landscape and just get lost. I would like to just go exploring with no sense of time and no rush to get places and make reservations. I plan on camping most of the time but getting a nice hotel in a few cities is not out of the question at all. So reccomend me some places to stop along my journey. Things to see, Places to eat...etc.
Here's my next thought. I love my jeep but obviously its not the ultimate highway machine. I would love to go all over in it but Im really not that confident that it would make it. I'd hate to be 1000+ miles from home and it break down. So I might take my 03 Dodge ram, so then I guess I really couldn't go fourwheeling in it. So that sucks. Any suggestions on this? Maybe a rental jeep? :firedevil:
Lets see what you guys got. Also any resoruces to make it easier to plan would be helpful. Maybe like campground map across the US and things like that.
