I was wondering if anyone could help my out (I'm sure you can!!)... in August my best friend is flying up to Seattle (from Georgia) and driving out to Knoxville, Tennessee with me. We were going to allow 8-10 days to drive out (although that's probably way more than we need... last time it took 5). The catch is, this time, we want to drive down the coast from Seattle to Santa Monica/LA, then out Route 66 (the old one) to St. Louis, then to Knoxville. Does anyone have any hints or tips? I've never driven down the coast to Cali before, and I've def. never been out Route 66! Any help you can give me would be amazing!!!
