As much as I'd love to I just can't see this happening for me unless I've won the lottery or got divorced

Married with young kids means a family holiday for me.

Have to see if they are signing up first......

I guess it would be most helpful if some of the locals might chip in with a draft itinerary of how long it might take us, or coming at it from the opposite direction, what we might be able to fit in over 10 or 12 days? I say 10 or 12 to allow for travelling and recovery at either end.......

This might be an Irish Run in the US with the way the sign-ups are going already.......

MtM does the USA !

You could pack em in an SUV and follow the MINIs........

This could be the trip of a lifetime Bob, don't write it off just yet........ You could bring the kids to Disney LA en-route........
