  1. Default Lafayette, IN to San Jose CA 2nd january

    Hello,
    its great to find this forum, I am anxious , as this is our ( my parents and I ) first long distance travel but what can I say, I got a job in california, and on a budget so I decided to drive.
    I don't know which route I should take, as I read on this forum about the different routes to take from midwest to west-coast.

    my current plan is to follow:


    Chicago->Milpitas

    I don't know if this is a good route or not, basing on the current weather conditions here in
    Midwest, we are all anxious.


    What do you all think?

    My other question would be , accommodation what is the typical procedure of
    planning where to stay. I imagine there is a site where it would list the available H/Motels
    along the route I am taking.


    Thanks for taking the time answering my question.

    Default Your route is fine -- depending upon the weather

    The route you have listed above is basically to follow I-80 across the country and generally that is a good bet in the wintertime. Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum!

    There are several such sites, here are a few we have reviewed. But because weather is the big wildcard here, I would suggest that you not make reservations anywhere and simply drive until you are tired and then find a place for the night. There are hundreds (maybe thousands) of choices along I-80. Here is more advice about getting reservations.
