Depending on how you will be traveling, by Motor home, trailer or by car and staying at Hotels, will determine how you pack. If you plan to drive your car you will be somewhat limited on what you take depending on your vehicle, also what you plan to do while visiting the parks and the areas you go to. We used our SUV which provided us the opportunity to take the items that we wanted to use on our trip. For instance we like to bike, hike, and play golf, therefore we did take our bikes, golf clubs and our basic hiking shoes (we are not mountain climbers) just easy hiking trails. We also brought with us, a picnic basket and a small cooler. This gave us the opportunity to enjoy eating at some of the most beautiful scenic areas on our trip.
Keep in mind the time of season you travel and the Parks you plan to visit, you will want to have the appropriate clothing. We started our trip late summer and finished in the early fall, the months of August to October. We brought with us two suit cases each, one with summer clothing and one with fall clothing. No need to tell you what to pack because we all have our own preferences.
- Before leaving on your trip do a trial packing of your vehicle.
- Pack light and do your laundry at the hotels once a week.
- Make your luggage easily accessible for your overnight stops.
