Hi, i've spent many an hour browsing this fab forum and thought i'd dip my toe in to see what you experienced folk could suggest as the best way/direction that we could take for our first cross country road trip from New York to San Francisco during late May'12. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
We are two friends and Honda Accord Coupe 2003; we are hoping to cover this trip in 9 days from May 20th to May 28th.
Rough plan is like NYC > Chicago > Mt. Rushmore > Yellowstone East Entrance > Old Faithful > Exit from West > Idaho Falls > Reno > SFO > Fly back to NYC (Google map link >> http://g.co/maps/f8yu7)
We are into nature and amateur photography and thinking to make more stop once we enter into Yellowstone spending less until Mt. Rushmore
We don't want to run into any clear risk (which we don't see) or miss anything good at all on this trip so experienced advice/suggestions/off the beaten track stuff will all be greatly appreciated
