Hi, @kellyfish . Sounds like a life-changing experience. I’m having some similar thoughts - not about cross-country travel but about turning my work-from-home opportunity into a work-from-the-road trip. And I’ve found this book — https://www.amazon.com/SUV-RVing-Travel-Explore-Ultimate-ebook/dp/B01HYMKE2K 

I haven’t read it all yet, but it seems to filled with suggestions, major and minor. 
good luck!
