Right now the plan is to head north along the gulf coast of FL, through the panhandle and over to New Orleans. From there it gets a little dicey. We think we might want to head back to Asheville, GA via Jackson, MS, Birmingham, AL, and Atlanta. From there hit the highlights of Tennessee (Knoxville, Nashville, and Memphis). Then maybe St. Louis, MO and from there, who knows?
For this northern leg of the trip, I have my eyes set on getting to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota. But I'm not sure the best route to get there. It seems like there are large expanses of nothingness between MO and the badlands. I like to try to keep drive times to about 3 hours, but may need to lengthen the drives or find some stuff to do in Iowa, Kansas, etc.
