First time poster, long time reader! A friend of ours recently asked if me and my husband would be interested in driving their car cross country and then flying us back to NY. They have a baby and don't want to attempt the trip themselves. The alternative is them shipping it out. The chance to travel cross country would be amazing - however, we only have about 7 days for the trip. Too crazy? We're fans of the smaller, more scenic routes and would hate to just barrel down I80 the whole way. We've done trips to Ohio, Chicago and Michigan and down south, so missing out on stuff that way isn't a big deal.
I guess I am wondering if anyone has suggestions for routes/interesting things to do and see that would be feasible in 7 days. We're both seasoned drivers, but don't want to spend ALL DAY in the car.
I have been reading previous threads, so have some idea of what to expect, but they are generally for longer trips.
