Hi, i'm in the very early stages of planning a road trip for next summer (2019) in early August. We, (me and my girlfriend, mid 30's, from UK) are going to spend 5 days around Yellowstone and hopefully take in a music festival close to Denver, which finishes on a sunday morning. We then intend to spend Sunday - Thursday driving to New Orleans (1300 miles) over 5 days/4 nights.
1) does this sound excessive distance/time wise? we don't mind doing a couple of 8/9 drives
2) which route would be the best to take, taking into account some good places to lay over for a couple of days/nights?
we would probably prefer a lay over in a city as we would have been camping for 5 days previous to this, but are open to any suggestions of alternative or interesting, cool places to visit and stay along the way to new orleans.
any help is greatly appreciated, still in the very early planning stages, probably will be back on the forum with a million more questions as planning progresses.
