I am so glad to found this excellent website.
A couple of months back, I drove to LA from Pittsburgh with my wife and now, it is time for me to head back. And this time, I am going solo and am kind of scared and free at the same time. Last time, we drove down to St. Louis and followed the old US-66 alignment but on the freeways. It took us 4 days and it was fun.
This time around, I am planning solo and have more time flexibility. Would you be kind to offer some suggestions on taking a different route? How does US-50 sound? I am thinking of taking some diversions rather than just rolling along freeway.
Any good trips that last a week or so? Some inspirational scenery or places would be welcome.
Also some tips to save some money as well. I am planning on camping when possible. But, I have not much planning skills and been just following the atlas. I have slept in the car in Walmart parking lots a few times, but those are in midwest.
I plan on driving for like 400 or so miles a day. This is my first solo and am kind of anxious. Any help is appreciated.
