Has anyone ever heard of RoadTrippers.com?? I've just recently discovered it, and I'm in LOVE! I've been trying to recreate the wheel with this whole trip planning thing, and this is making my life so much easier. There are still some glitches and improvements that they're working on, but all in all, a good product. They have a directory of places to stop along your journey (places to eat, attractions, camping, hotels, etc...) and they also have guides with suggested places to go (like all the restaurants from Man Vs. Food, or all the US National Parks, or stops along Route 66, etc...). You can add stops to your route, or create a bucket list with options of things to do along the way. You can add dates to each place on your route, creating your trip itinerary, and it gives you mileage and estimated gas cost. I hope to see some more improvements in the future, especially in their apps (I've been driving their support team crazy...haha), but it's definitely worth using. I'll probably be posting information from them along the way...
Description from their site:
"Roadtrippers is a simple and intuitive USA road trip planner.

Roadtrippers is a powerful route planner, perfect as a RV trip planner or family trip planner, as it not only let’s you plan a route on the map, but seamlessly syncs your travel itinerary to turn-by-turn navigation via our iPhone app."
