Hi - I am new to this Forum but have been a driver for about 25 years now. I wanted to see if anyone in this Forum has driven across the country from East Coast to Orange County CA, and back on a different route?
I will be driving with my college buddy who also loves driving on August 7th evening to August 17 evening. We previously made it out to Rapid City SD in 2 1/2 days with lodging.
We're planning driving the lower states, then up San Francisco through the Rockies.
I am most interestes in site seeing certain states such as the Grand Canyon and so forth.
I will be driving a 2006 VW New Beetle TDI 5speed, which gets about 45 miles per gallon. I am already planning this trip by installing a CB radio to kill some bordom on the road.
We also will take turn sleep/drive to reduce some delays but not all the time.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
