So my questions are-
Is this roadtrip/route do-able? Or should we take less/more time on anything specific on the route?
Anything on that route we should see that's not listed?
What is the climate/weather during that time period? What kind of clothing to bring?
Any other must-have things to bring?
Anything specific you think we should do/see specifically at any of those attractions I've listed?
Any good travel books/sites/etc that tells about any of those places listed?
Any other good tips on these places, road trips, travel, or anything?
