- Everything takes longer than expected. I did plan down time to make up for our being late but I didn't plan enough. After the first day, we got into a rhythm getting everything packed up, but that first day we were really late and it killed us.
- Know were to buy firewood. As a result of #1, we were always arriving at campgrounds after the check-in stations were closed. Some campgrounds had gas stations or camp stores nearby so it wasn't a problem; others didn't and it was a little annoying trying to find firewood.
- Check that framed, child backpack carriers are allowed. I would have never guessed these are banned in certain places but they were. For example, they are not allowed in the caves at Mammoth Cave National Park. As a result we didn't get to go in. Had I checked, we could have brought a different carrier.
- If you are not traveling during peak season, things may close up early. We had a couple of the campground stores close before we arrived because business was slow.
|We even got to take a ferry across Lake Champlain in New York.|
