Spring 2015 Plans, Version 2
Our departure date from Ann Arbor has moved up to April 1st, and as such we need to haul tail down south so we can get this pink goo out of our RV’s veins.
We had two criteria. 1) Get warm. 2) Don’t go too far east or west. We aim to be in northern Minnesota by mid June, which means we have about 10 weeks in between. My first draft of the route looks like this.
There are many national forests along the way. Apalachicola Nat’l Forest is almost due south from Ann Arbor, and on the Gulf Coast. It’s sure to be nice and warm there by April. There are also 4 MLB stadiums along our route. The Reds in Cincinnati, Braves in Atlanta, Cardinals in St Louis and Twins in Minneapolis.
3000 miles is a lot to log in 2 1/2 months. We’re leaving much earlier than planned, though, and we have no choice but to go about twice as far south (if not more) to escape the last grips of winter.
An updated draft of the full route for 2015 looks something like this, clocking in at about 7500 miles.
