I've got probably a week and a half of free time cuz of work and I don't know where I should go. I live around Chicago and I'm willing to drive I guess. but I've driven to the Rockies like three times and I'm tired of doing that drive. I'd prefer to fly and rent a car but on such short notice I know it's going to be expensive. I really like hiking and I have plenty of stuff for camping and whatever. Don't care much for hanging around cities unless I'm going with someone. haven't been to the east coast at all and I don't really care to. I'm much more interested in the West and Southwest, you know, stuff that looks as different from the Midwest as possible. but any recommendations that I wouldn't already know about would be appreciated. also i have no passport and have never been out of the country. I'd rather not sit at home for a week and a half.
