This is my first post as a new member of RTA. I'm thrilled to have found this resource!
My daughter and I (not a youngster, drives) will be driving from Houston to LA (possibly Topanga? Possibly Venice? Possibly Van Nuys? yikes) in a Toyota Prius with a fair amount of her belongings in the car. We'll strive to cover 500 miles a day.
I'll need to fly home to HOU on the 19th, 20th of May at the absolute latest, and the unknowns of West Texas and LA are well, unknowns and stressing me out a little.
I lived in Tarzana, CA for a year when I was about my daughter's age so my memory of the area is antiquated (1977).
Is Hwy 10 the best way from Houston?
Any specific recommendations for places to stay along the way, and for a one-night stay in a hotel near LAX?
