Advice on extended tent camping trip

18 years ago

First let me say this is just an idea I am intertaining. I am retired, and ought to also add I am not a novice camper, but most of the camping I have done in recent years was of the backpack/backcountry variety. But I am thinking about taking a car trip across the country and staying in a good tent rather than in a motel at night. I imagine State Parks or National Parks would be the target for the overnights. There would be two of us, my wife and I, and she likes to be as comfortable as possible and I don't mind spending the money to make that happen, if it is possible. So I am thinking of gear; tents, sleeping bags, sleeping mats, chairs, cooking gear, etc, Maybe a small tow behind trailer to keep the gear in. Some of the gear I have would suit but I know most of it is light weight stuff and might not be best for what I have in mind, Anybody do this? Is this a crazy idea or what? Any equipment ideas or thoughts on the best way to do this?
