    Hi folks, since actual RV discussions have slowed down quite a bit ('tis the season), i thought i'd post our plans for next year in May, and see if you have any suggestions.

    We plan on taking two weeks and a day to drive down, spend a day in Orlando, a few days in Cape Coral with a family friend and drive back. on the way, we will stop in to see a few national parks/monuments, maybe see Graceland. I know this is an agressive plan if we want to keep the miles per day around 350, but there might be a day or two we will stretch it further.

    We may take the southern route on the way back.

    350 miles is a good number to shoot for. I like your southern route back. :cool:

    Looks like a very nice trip... But if it was me doing the driving I would avoid Atlanta at all cost. Even the beltways around Atlanta are a nightmare.

    thanks for the advice. we'll try to avoid the Atlanra area then. Do you have a suggestion on a good bypass route?

    Good to know. We were going to be in the area in about a month!

    Whenever I travel close to Atlanta I use many secondary highways and roads to avoid Atlanta. Many of the roads I use are through farm country. It will add mileage to your trip but will reduce the traffic frustration.
