My husband and I are doing a honeymoon-moving-roadtrip from Southern California to Savannah, GA, leaving October 24. We plan to follow Route 66 to St. Louis, then take whatever roads work the rest of the way.
I've looked at books for how to follow Route 66 (although most of them go the opposite direction from what we're doing), but I don't know what is reasonable as far as how many days to take, how far to drive each day, and so on.
I'd be happy to just leave it up in the air, to balance the spending relaxed time together and getting to Savannah quickly as we drive, but there's the possibility of day tripping from St. Louis to Milwaukee (by plane) for v. cheap. That trip, however, would need to be planned ahead of time, and I'm just not quite sure if the Safehouse is worth the side trip and planning.
