Our big cross country trip in October will be my longest road trip yet. The furthest I have driven from Arizona is 17 hours.
But this trip isn’t a 10 day undertaking. Wynston and I will be on the road for 5 weeks!
While I research the areas we will be visiting, I’ve been concocting a list of things I want to do during our trip across the US.
Wynston and I are going to be living in our minivan camper conversion as we explore the United States over a period of five weeks. This sort of solo undertaking takes research, preparation and a lot of open-mindedness.
Travel is not new to me, and neither is driving a long distance by myself. But because I will be living on the road for five weeks with my dog, it’s important that I prepare properly.
In this post I share how I’m preparing for a five week road trip with Wynston around the USA. I’m working on my van, mind, body and soul so I am fully ready to be living out of our vehicle.
Wynston and I casually checked out the Flagstaff KOA in northern Arizona just for the heck of it. I wanted to test a few things in our camper van, so it was the perfect chance to visit the KOA.
This is our Flagstaff KOA review, and if you aren’t familiar with KOAs, check out our guide here!
I absolutely love staying at KOA campgrounds with Wynston. If you’re not familiar with the term KOA, it is the acronym for Kamgrounds of America.
KOAs are located throughout the entire US, and there are plenty of them scattered along popular travel routes. There are over 500 KOA campgrounds located throughout North America.
KOA campgrounds are dog-friendly, and you’ll often find that each KOA you visit has a Kamp K9 Dog Park.
Since I’m such a big fan of staying at KOAs, I put together a dog-friendly guide to staying at a KOA campground. This information will help you prepare for your next visit with Fido!
