We live near SA and go up to the Upper Penninsula of Michigan frequently to see daughters. We stay at KOAs in Texarkana, near Memphis, Bloomington, IL and DeForest WI near Madison. That puts you right at about the mileage you want to drive a day. If you take an extra day by Memphis, you can sightsee that city. I like KOAs because they are usually easy to make reservations on line and have good hookups with lots of pull through sites.
