Default Build a $100,000 trip

I'll be starting my journey from Detroit, Michigan in a 2016 AEV JK350. I have two small dogs coming with me as well. Where would you go and what would you do?

I'd invest it looking to earn 6-10% per year and use that new wealth to fund an adventure every year to places I've yet to travel too.

No offense but I'm looking for fun adventures, not investment plans.

I would plan a liquor tour. Go see the great breweries, wineries, and distilleries of this country. While making stops at off road parks along the way. Document your trip and meet up with other forum members along the way. That trip could literally take you from coast to coast with something to do every day.

I'd go on an epic road trip. From Detroit I'd head West and check out Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole, then head up Glacier NP, then go into Canada up to Banff take the ice fields pkwy to Jasper NP, then head back towards Kootenai NF and see Kootenai Falls, then head west into Idaho, then over to Washington to the Northern Cascades then head north to Alaska, if I decided to come back I'd head south down the west coast, see the Redwoods, Mt. Shasta, then head back east and do the Rubicon, then Yosemite NP, Death Valley, Bryce Canyon NP, Zion, Capital Reef.....and so on

I would check out the Mojave desert. It's a great time of year for Death Valley, the Mojave trail, Joshua tree, Big Bear Lake, I think its to late in the year to run the Rubicon trail or Dusy Ershim trail, There are some great trails in UT & AZ. But it all comes down to the time of year. Here is a link to some great guide books.

Hope this helps.

My start date will be between now and spring. Nothing specific yet. I'm also considering shipping my Jeep over seas to include Europe but I don't know where to start with the logistics. Diesel vs gas etc...I would love to see Romania

If you have not seen Yellowstone, everyone needs to see it at least once.
