West.

  I've been up and down the east coast from NYC to Miami and on the ocean to the Virgin Islands but have never got to see the Mississippi river. Actually Alabama is as far west I have got. Want to take a dip in the pacific someday.

  An interesting note I have observed: the farther north you travel from SC the more folks start taking sugar out of the iced tea and put it in the cornbread. ::)

Wouldn't anyone go on a Brewery Tour?  I would all across the country.  And if I was insanely rich, I go to a baseball game in every stadium along the way.

I don't think Tesla needs a motorhome to travel around that island.   ;D

We have an older couple in our club who take off every summer in their RV and troll along the West Coast stopping at breweries along the way. Of course, they live year round in their RV which they actually park at an airport hangar that he occupies as well.

I wouldnt leave the United States

So much to offer here it could take all of a lifetime to do everything.

That being said the motorhome would have a trailer towing a small boat and I would hit all the inshore hotspots with fly-rod and spinning gear in hand  ;D

This, plus: birddog and shotgun, big game rifle, and sportbike.

I would plan my trip by the seasons:

Fall - Start in New England and move through the South and all around the Gulf.
Winter - Texas and the Southwest making my way up the coast
Spring - Western states. Gotta hit the fishing spots!
Summer - Northern Midwest.

I figure I ought to be able to hunt, fish, and drink my way around the country in 12 months!

The wife and I have talked about taking a road trip and hitting up all the National Parks. A motorhome would be the ideal way of doing this type of trip. I would have to map out side trips to check out breweries along the way. Of course, we'd have to spend ski season in the mountains too.  8)
Cheers!

I would head west then up the Pacific Northwest.  No plans, just go.  Do some hiking along the way.

Is that a UniMog camper?  I saw a ton of those vehicles in the Hartz Mountains when there was an east germany.  That was then, I as young, had long hair, and had fun.

Yup It is PNW (Vancouver) for me as soon as Jeb gets into office.

PNW is just amazing for a flatlander kid who grew up 4 blocks from Lake Miltiagan.

We want to explore the southwest. I also want to travel up to Alaska. Our hope is to retire in our RV. The wife and I have limited vacation time, so it's hard to get to really appreciate the great frontier. Someday we will...I hope.
