It looks like my boy and I are crossing SoCal to Cape Cod and back this summer. 4 nights on the road eastbound, and a week + on the return. I think the eastbound route will be thru the panhandle, and then on the return west thru Boulder and Utah, probably bounce around Arches, Escalante, Bryce etc. I'd love to do it in both directions camping on BLM land or off-grid, and am looking for possible destinations that break up into about a 9-hour-apart plan, especially anything east of Colorado. No hotels, no big cities, preferably no summertime campgrounds, might as well sleep in a WalMart lot. We are denizens of the heat - Mojave moto in the summer - but it could be a concern when/if it comes to sleeping in it. Chime in overlanders, I need some hints!
