Hello everyone, my name Leon and i am from Denver, Colorado. My sister who is living in LA, CA has a graduation party this end of July so i plan to drive from Denver to LA to attend her party and by the way make a summer vacation. This is the first time i am going on a long road trip so i don't have any experienced. So i need like some advise and recommendation that need for the trip.
I will tell a little bit about my plan so that you guys can advise me. I have a quite old car, a 98 Toyota Celica with approximately 150k mileage. The car, well at least i think it is in a good shape. I've already done a tune up and inspection for the car so i think it can make it to LA without any significant problem. I plan to start on Monday, July 25. There are places that i would want to visit like the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Hoover Dam. I want to ask if you guys have any advise about preparation and the route to take and anythings interesting on the way there. And how much may i spend for the trip along with the fuel and lodging. I may take a week of travel because i have to be there on July 31, it is the day my sister's graduation ceremony. Thank you very much.
