A close friend and I were planning a road trip for this passed summer, but unfortunately our plans fell through. :(
Now she is moving with her family out to Longmont, CO (near Boulder) from Fair Lawn, NJ (20 minutes outside NYC) in July '08 and have enlisted my help. They offered to pay for my gas (or plane ticket, but I'm more adventurous than that) and to help out with other car maintenance if necessary.
The only set plan we have right now is to take i-80 out to Penn State to visit a friend, but other than that, we could use some suggestions of places to stop, alternative/more interesting highways to explore, etc. About how much time should I set aside for this, not including the few days I'm spending in CO? I'll be driving out there with her and a '03 Toyota Corolla load of stuff (a surprisingly large amount!) and back by myself. Either way, she doesn't drive so that will be all me.
