Can someone spell out the $ and other benefits of camping???
DH and I just returned home to VA after taking the Southern route all the way to the West coast. We were humbled and awed by the Grand Canyon, Mackenzie Pass/3 Sisters, and all the wonders of Yellowstone. We followed the Pacific Coast Hwy all the way into OR, where my brother lives.
One thing kept cropping up in our conversations: We wish the kids were with us. They'd love this!
We could tell from their emails and our phone talks that they really wanted to take such a trip.
Here's what we're thinking:
1. We have 2 daughters, married, with husbands who work. I'm retired, and DH has one more year. Could we divide three ways the cost of an RV big enough to hold the 6 of us , split gas money, etc, enabling us all to go?
