hey everyone! My husband, son, a few friends & I are roadtripping to san diego this summer to visit a family member, I have a few questions. Can some one help?
I am really concerned about safety, i've heard of troubles driving through the deserts & also those horror movies freak me out lol. We want to leave wichita at night so we can drive through the night in a place we are familiar with so when we do reach the desert, it will be daytime. We want to drive straight there only stopping for gas, food, restroom breaks, etc. We are planning for the end of june or in july sometime.
1) Is the desert really dangerous & if so, what should we look out for or worry about?
2) What's the best route to take? quickest but scenic
3) I've heard it will take about 21 hours straight there, does that sound about right?
4) If we do decide to stop at tourist sites, what are some beautiful places to see?
We just started planning this so we are open to ideas. Tips on traveling are appreciated seeing as i've never roadtripping or drove long distances. Thanks so much!
