Well, now I finally have tentative dates set for a road trip with my girlfriend and I! No other posts for California road trips helped me much, so I decided to post one myself. We are both 18 and 20, and don't mind driving long distances for long periods of time if we need. One will sleep, one will drive if our trip depends on it! Anyway, here is a schedule of places i'd like to visit, and how long it takes to get from one to the other.
The trip is going to be from July 13th until July 28th or 29th. I put ???? next to places that I'm not sure about going to, but are definetly of interest. If need be, please let me know which ones to sacrifice. I don't plan on doing too much in AZ/NM because I'm trying to save time for California. Not pressed for budget. I'll be in a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
