Talking ROAD TRIP!!!! Need ideas of places to stop.

The SO & I are taking 2 weeks in Aug(bc next year life gets real) and roadtriping/camping something similar to this:



Any suggestions on places we should stop? Hiking, food, weird, fun all good! We're not shoppers though, so no need for that. Also cheap... We're both pretty broke. HaHa!

We wanted to go to Alaska... But it's too far for 2 weeks and flights were too expensive. /sad.

If you're at all into military history, check out the exhibit at the war college in Carlisle, PA. It's an army history museum but outdoors. You can walk through WWI style trenches, pill boxes, a colonial fort and many other things from different eras in US military history.

Charge your phone.

Also, stop at my house along the way.

Also, the Kutztown Fair is the second week of August. Not sure when in August you're going

Get a Vince's Cheesesteak while you're there. He's a good friend of mine and makes a heck of a sammich

I bet you might his some state fairs depending on when you go - that would be super fun!

I'm from Indiana and Ohio so if you have any questions about those states, let me know - they both have some nice parks and such, but nothing is jumping out at me as far as sightseeing goes.

If you go through Montana, Great Falls has a nice place to stop for coffee/drinks and food! It's called the Fastest Basset. It's a Coffee and Crepe place during the day and a burger joint bar at night. All local food and brews. Great place to stop while in that barren area!

There's also an Amish store you pass on the way there, about an hour outside of town. Best beef/venison jerky and milkshakes!

And obviously South Chicago has AMAZING hole in the wall food joints. Just be careful.
