Me and two of my friends have planned a road trip from Ft. Lauderdale, FL to Los Angeles, CA this December. The route follows the southern states, mostly along I-10. Panama City, Lake Havasu City, Las Vegas, Death Valley park are in our plan. We have about 10 days to make this trip. Any suggestions/guidance that u can provide to make this trip great would be fantastic.
We understand that this is like a speed run, but the three of us will be driving in shifts. We are also not planning on more than 10-12 hrs of drive a day. We are not planning on making advanced reservations for hotel/motel either. If there is an alternative route that would be better, please suggest.
