Moving to Vancouver from Toronto and want to do a road trip through the US and to the Grand Canyon on the way there.
My question is about the first portion from Toronto to Denver. I will be leaving this weekend and meeting a friend in Denver on Tuesday.
It's 2400 km to Denver. I figure I'll do 600 kms / day. What should I expect doing this drive ? Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska... Should I just barrel down and get it over with in 3 days @ 800 kms / day to save me some boredom ?
After picking up my friend in Denver we'll do the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Las Vegas, Northern California, Wine Country, Oregon, Washington State... and other friends will be flying in to join for different parts of the trip so it will surely be interesting...
Any advice, must sees, avoids, anything ?
I like kinda doing things spontaneously so I don't want too rigid a schedule, but I don't want to miss anything too obvious out of ignorance of a locale...
