  1. Default LA-NY, September-- with a pooch. Tips?

    Hi, everyone!

    I'm a long-distance roadtrip newbie, so I'm very appreciate of this forum and everyone's thoughts!

    I'll be (temporarily) relocating from Los Angeles to NYC in September, and I'd like to be there on or around October 1.

    I'll be traveling with a well-behaved Basset Hound, and I'd like to drive no more than 8 hours a day if possible. I'm happy to take up to two weeks for the trip, and would of course be happy to see exciting sights along the way.

    Other than that, I don't even know where to begin planning! My casual prodding of google maps baffles me right off the bat-- if my first leg of the journey takes me to Vegas, the second day, to Denver, seems almost undoable, especially with a pooch in the back, but I don't know where else to stop. (See what a noob I am?)

    Experienced roadtrippers, let me pick your brains!

    Thanks so much,

    Annie (and Rufus)

    Here are some tips for getting him/her ready for the trip.
    - if my first leg of the journey takes me to Vegas, the second day, to Denver,
    You can take some more time than that. There is alot to see along I-70. What kinds of things interest you?

  3. Default special places of interest

    Hi,

    Since you have 2 weeks to travel you might think of places you have always wanted to visit - Grand Canyon, Carsbad Caverns, Mt. Rushmore to name a few of my first must sees. You can actually look at a map and connect the dots. After finding the general route, you could request to individual states you will pass through for their information packet. You will find that they will provide you with a wealth of helpful info. As Mark said, your general interests would be helpful to others to assist you.

    Good luck in your planning - part of the fun in a trip is the planning phase, at least for my husband and myself.

    Have fun!!
