My girlfriend and I are looking to travel the country this summer and we just want any advice you all have to offer. We'll be starting in South Florida and we'll either go up the east coast or across the Gulf of Mexico (New Orleans is a must) and get to Lake Tahoe (final destination). We'd like to do this as cheaply as possible, so we'll be staying with friends and family in New York, Tennessee, Colorado, and California and we plan on camping at state parks in between. We're planning on Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and Rocky Mountains (at least 3 of those). I'd also love to take my dog unless enough people think it's a horrible idea. Any route suggestions? Must see destinations? Anyone advise against taking my dog with us? Anything else you all have to offer? Thanks!
