Questions about 2 month trip across the country

Jump to last reply

Hello, starting to plan our summer(aug-sept) trip to Alaska, we are leaving from south florida heading to New Orleans, then up through Santa Fe into Colorado we are going to take the million dollar highway to grand junction, then east to Denver through the Rockies.

From there our tentative plan is to swing by Yellowstone on our way to glacier national park in Montana, then to cross the canadian border through Calgary (we want to go to banff and jasper parks) then the Alaskan highway,,,we will end in anchorage.

From there we will head back except this time we will come back into the states through Vancouver and into Washington we will tour our way to the pacific highway and head south to Santa Cruz then east to Yosemite-death valley-grand canyon-then Utah (Bryce canyon, the arches.....) then maybe back down through Colorado New Mexico, Texas and back home to florida.

Soooo I would like to know is, if any distinguished potheads out there like myself have done a trip like this one? where and what should i do??? we will be trying to boondock most of the way(camp for free) or find cheap campsites along the way... should we plan on staying in campgrounds just outside of the state parks or should we try to camp in the state parks... sorry if i am rambling on, but i have lots of questions being that i havent ever left east coast of the US.

by the way we are looking to do some light trail riding in our 4x4 wherever possible nothing crazy though any help is appreciated.... thanks!
