    • The NPS says that it is from Natchez, MS to Nashville, TN? That's the part we traveled.
    • Angie M, how about an update on where you are on this and what you plan to do? 
    • We have been down the Blue Ridge/Skyline drive twice and really enjoyed it. Lots to see and do. The Great Smoky NP is at the southern end. We went up the Natchez Trace, mostly, last year and it was not as impressive. I made an error tho and assumed that it started at Natchez and missed the south leg which starts at Jeckson IIRC. So maybe that is more interesting. There is a lot of free camping on the Trace tho,  
    • That will be a trip of about 2,700 miles if you travel by the most direct route. Since you seem to be about to leave, I'd agree that you need to stay to the south and take I10 as much as possible which makes the trip 4,000 miles. If you route to make very many stops along the way it will quickly make the trip 4,000 miles and in between you basically have most of the USA.  The answer to this will depend on what route you do choose and the weather as you travel. To the south are places like the Grand Canyon, and there are 12 national parks and monuments in Arizona alone. Because there is so much that you may want to see, it would help a lot to have some idea of what sort of things you are interested in. If you choose I40 you will pass through some Memphis & Nashville, both of which have great attractions if you enjoy music of most types. Going more to the north, Colorado has another 17 national parks and monuments along with many other attractions. I could start listing the possible things to see and places to visit but that lise would be far too long to be of much help. I would suggest Passport America as a good way to save money on campsites. That is an entire thread all by it's self. We did a lot of RV volunteer work-camping which supplied us with a full hookup site and usually some other amenities in return for a few days per week of help, often doing things that we loved to do anyway, but little or no pay. There are also dozens of places that hire RV folks such as RV parks with a site and pay and there are many seasonal jobs that pay a lot for long hours, allowing one to make a lot of money in a short period of time such as harvests or Christmas season. 
    • I am going to suggest several things to do to hopefully prepare you for your adventures.     These are different things that you can do previously to getting behind the wheel.    Look online for a commercial drivers manual?    This will give you a idea how large vehicles work besides your normal one you have driven before. It should give you a idea how when being passed by a truck, it may affect your vehicle.      Then I would suggest visiting a campground to see how other people handle there experience of pulling into a campground. Then how they maneuver there outfit in a campground.     While you are there, walk around during the morning and mid afternoon. While walking around, watch how people pull or back into there sites.     Then watch how they connect up to there utilities.       Another thing to do as you can, is visiting a Truck stop.. Just park possibly where you can watch RV,s pull in for fueling. How they maneuver there vehicle around the area.       While at a truck stop, look for where RV,s are parking for the night.    Most truck stops have a place to visit the dump station. You need to figure that out also.     We all started our first time. Most of us have done more than one mistake in our adventures.   Hopefully this will help you some.    Vern
