For the past few years, I have wanted to take 4th of July week, pack up my Wrangler and go on a road trip. I don't have a particular destination in mind, but don't want to wander completely aimlessly. So, help me plan my trip. My wish list? It can be 5-7 days in total. I'd prefer not to haul it for a long stretch on the last day. I am open to a nice hike or scenic spot. I don't care if it's north or south. There can be a destination at the end of the ride....or a few stops on a round trip. My favorite piece of the trip would probably be the dumpy little diners or weird people I'd meet along the way. I'm leaving from West Hartford, CT. Think Jack Kerouac meets Easy Rider meets Planes Trains and Automobiles meets a short fat guy on a minor mid life crisis.
