Not to offend anyone as I live in the middle part of the country but you can skip large parts of IL unless you like endless mils of corn. I would definitely goto Chicago however. How can skip large parts of KY also. Central KY is good to see including Mammoth Cave, Bowling Green and Lexington. For TN, East Tn has a lot to see and the Mississippi on the Western border of TN is good to see. If you are into fishing middle TN is very good. You can skip a lot in Mississippi except Natchez Trace and Boloxi. Alabama, Huntsville for the Space Center and Gulf Shores for the Red Neck Riviera as we call it. GA if you like traffic then that state can accommodate you nicely.

Worked the plan and now living the Dream!

Thanks for the advice.

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.

Retired early, traveling perpetually.
