Hi guys... I find myself with 5 weeks to get from Oklahoma City to LA with a standard car at the end of next month.
My plan is to take I40 to Albuquerque then drop down New Mexico thro T&C onto Silver City, through to Tuscan and up through Arizona to Flagstaff and back to explore the Four Corners area.
After that I'm unsure whether to go up thro Moab and over the North Rim and down the I93 to Vegas or to head onto LA via Vegas on what's left of R66.
I'm traveling solo and will hopefully camp or look for budget motels or hostels along the route to hook up with other travellers. I'm hoping not to rely on reservations to remain flexible on my trip though realise it'll be peak season when I set off.
I've had a look thro this site and it's given me some great info. Still I'm wondering what's practical to cover and which places to allow more time throughout the 5 weeks so any advice is welcome, as is variations on my idea for the trip.
