In Oct of 2013 we are planning a trip from Alaska to North Carolina. We will be homeschooling as we go. We should be gone about 2 months. What would you go and see if you could? What would you teach about while on the road?

Wow! What a trip! Are you going to visit Mt. Rushmore? Grand Canyon? What about maybe seeing some of the highlights of the Oregon Trail?

You get to learn about different countries too since you have to go through Canada. I would go to yellowstone and mount rushmore and just about anywhere I could and take a different route back.

Oh Wow!  You are going to have so much fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  lol     We used to travel in an rv for awhile and the kids absolutely loved it!  You should head out and travel on one route and then head home on a different route so as to maximize the traveling experience. I don't know that I would hit all the touristy sites but I would see some of them. I would try and go to some of the out of the ordinary places that most tourists don't think are important enough to visit. That way you can experience a lot of the "locale's" own personality without the touristy advertising feel that tourist sites are known for.  Which also means you would get to see and hear and feel what so many people miss in a touristy spot.  This is also a great way to explore if you are not set up financially to see everything touristy.  One thing you should spend some money on and that is a bunch of those disposable cameras!  Take as many pictures as you possibly can.  You can have the prints doubled and you can also put them to cd.  This experience will last you a lifetime and your kids as well.   I know ours still talk about some of the places they got to visit.  :)

Dog Sledding!  Yes that's the only thing I can think that I'd like to really do in Alaska.  And see the Iditorod Race (thanks Balto!).  Or are we talking about NC?  Hmmm... I like history so go see some old forts, maybe view some plantations (if that's allowed.  If  I could see the cotten gin or see it in action that would be cool.  Beach naturally (maybe sneak down to Myrtle Beach).  Mount Rushmore would be neat to see.  Anything nature/history/archaelogy/anthropology/animal related I'd see.
