Leisure Travel Vans: Planning a major road trip

From the bloggers at Leisure Travel Vans

By way of introduction I should warn you that I’m one of those guys who looks at a map and is fascinated by the thin blue and gray lines that wander off into nowhere in particular. I can’t help but wonder what the country these roads traverse is like.

Travel has always been a part of my life. My first major adventure on the road was in the early 1970s when I planned a road trip to Nova Scotia from southwest Missouri in a 1966 Volvo 1800S with two kids (just over one and almost four), mostly by writing for information. The basis of my research was a listing of state and provincial tourism agencies I found in the travel section of the local newspaper. I wrote letters to each state and province we anticipated visiting and it took several weeks for all of the information to arrive.

The process took a lot of time but the effort was worthwhile as we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
