Hi everyone, this is my first post here. A couple friends and I (19 yrs old) are planning a 3-week (max) road trip out west. Itinerary:
Big Sur (via LA--surprisingly the fastest route)
Return to Chicago
According to Mapquest, this is around 5,000 miles total. 2500 are just driving between Chicago and Denver and back. Is this route too ambitious? We will be tent camping every night we have the chance. We really don't want to spend more than 3 weeks on the road. We might want to hit the Great Sand Dunes of CO or San Fran. Any advice on revising this or somehow shortening it would be appreciated. Thanks!
