The Washington Post has a fun article by the wife of the German ambassador to the United States, Jutta Falke-Ischinger. Her husband felt that the best way to see the United States was to rent an RV and tour. They drove through New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, up into Canada, and back through Maine, ending up in their normal vacation spot on Martha's Vineyard. While they are obviously privileged and used to a more up-scale lifestyle, her story is an interesting observation of the RV traveler's world, and a nice, if not a bit abbreviated, travelogue. (I would like to read a more detailed diary of her experience!) See Guns and Butter for his commentary. He suggests they undertake a cross-country trek.
