My hubby and I are planning a trip X-country in January, starting in Maryland and taking the "Southern Route", eventually ending up in Palm Springs, where we will be staying in some friends' accommodations through March 2008.
Have any members out there driven in this direction during Winter? If so, any advice on routing would be appreciated. We have friends in Atlanta, NOrleans, Dallas and Albuquerque. Beyond that, we haven't thought about the exact route. We prefer scenic drives, with quirky attractions and great local, dive restaurants nearby! We won't be on any particular schedule, so can go as slow as we wish and stay in crazy motels along the way where we don't have friends.
We plan to base in Palm Springs and spend the winter discovering the surrounding areas (Mojave, Las Vegas, Arizona, San Diego, etc).
Returning in late March/early April, what would be a good route back East that would avoid any duplication? (assuming weather permits!)
I think this forum is awesome!!! Can't wait to read your suggestions!
Many thanks in advance!
