Looking for advice on a trip from LA to Chicago. Not really interested in site seeing as much, just about getting there in one piece and quickly.
How long should I plan for this trip? Starting early in the morning day each day, are there natural stopping points each night (ie, how far should I be after day 1/2/3 etc)? Are motels generally around $100? Or cheaper?
Any advice on which route to take? I've heard the Rockies route isnt as good as the Route 66 route? Or is that wrong. Again, I dont really care to sitesee that much (though it'd be cool to see the grand canyon and some other major spots). I'll be taking an old Honda Accord, if that makes a difference, and the timing will be end of August/beginning of Sept.
