Greetings from NJ as I plan my first extended RV trip, scheduled for departure in Nov of 2011....I am new to this "blog", but not new to RV travel. I intend to travel from NJ, to Florida with a 6 week stay on the west coast, after seeing the NASCAR championships in Homestead. I will be traveling with my 2 Labrador Retrievers, so would love info on finding dog friendly RV parks. My goal is to travel the Gulf Coast, into Texas and on to Phoenix for a NASCAR Race in March, as well as a race in Laas Vegas....with a return in late March back to the NJ Shore. Please share your "must see", or helpful hints. I plan to see some of Rt 66 in Texas and always have my eye ( and stomach) on any great Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.....I will be in a 2008 Winnebago Destination with a Honda CRV in tow....any recommendations and pointers would be great......

Keep us posted with your travel stories here on your Blog. For answers to your questions you will get a better response by posting them in the Forum rather than here. I would suggest that you post two queries on the Forum, one for the dog-friendly parks and a second for the diner/dives along your route.

I like the way you plan a trip. We do this often, pick several key destinations and then just set out and find what we can along the way. It looks like a good plan to me.

My last trip from Florida to California wasNov 2009. I used I 10 because is the southernmost route to croos the U.S. East West. On the return trip we got caught by rare snow in El Paso and the traffic jam "parking lot" extended for miles. The problem was ice and every one big and small had a lot of difficulty negotiating it.. Considering how crazy is the weather and how "foreign" is that part of the world to those conditions I would give myself plenty of time for that part of the trip and make sure that you are a happy camper: "full tank of gas and fresh water with empty holding tanks"

Happy trails

Thanks so much....will do. I like the I-10 route and plan to ride that way. The crazy weather is always a concern.....good info. Thanks again.
