Sorry we're not closer to help you with the PPI, Cynthia. I know this is jumping the gun a little, but if you buy the coach, and if you have time, there's plenty of space available here in Campbellsville, KY where we're currently parked. The RV park is nothing to write home about but there's an empty spot right next to us and it's FHU. It would be a little bit of a detour for you on your way to Atlanta but, depending on the route you take, it might not be too bad. We could spend a couple of days comparing notes and helping you get comfortable with the coach systems. Get in touch with Kerry (you have her contact details) if you're interested. We're happy to help if we can.

Make sure you hit some hot springs in steamboat (that’s what they named the town for the steam rising up looked like a steam boat), or on the road to Winter Park there’s a town Hot Sulphur Springs, there’s a real nice hot springs place there. I wouldn’t take the pass from Winter Park to i70, I think it’s Bethound, pretty steep for a first time run in a bird.
You may have a easier route going north to i80, I’m not sure thought never went up that way.

Yes,i would maybe go north to 8o and then east,i would avoid Denver if i could.
go over to 287,east of Denver and run down toward Amarillo.
Denver is a busy place,not good for a newbie in a big bus.

Also, it's about 3 hours driving time without weather delays.

Hi Kevin!
That is sooo tempting. if it wasn't because we want to be back "home for Thanksgiving" we would take the uber scenic route back.

Hot Springs is a must. We absolutely will do.
About the route...We were planning on spending the weekend at St. Vrain State Park...but that would been either coming down to Denver or up around hwy 14 which looks kinda windy...I'm starting to get worried about getting out of the mountains. lol

I think the ey is to get out of the mountains,pick a weather window and go,no camping this time of year in the rockies!
Theres no place to camp in Denver,but i would be heading east and south,down into the warmer states.
watch the weather.

That is a much easier route, some two lane roads(or it was the last time I was on it), but good country and lots less traffic. Mostly farm country.
