It all started with Harleys, of course. But now we've got families (we're 8 altogether) and it's really down to a great big motor home, I guess.

It's a difficult question but given a whole summer month (not more) what would be the best route? You know, to be able to say at the end of it, that we had an idea of America: not the most beautiful or pleasant places, but (if it's possible) a good cross-section of all that's definitely integral to a minimum understanding and appreciation of what the U.S. is all about today. What's absolutely essential? Any ideas? Pre-emptive thanks for any suggestions.
