I'm new to this and have never attempted a trip like this before. Me and a buddy of mine are planning on driving from Massachusetts to San Francisco this spring break. We will be leaving on a Thursday, and the latest we would possibly wanna get there is the Thursday a week later. I know this doesn't give us much time, but the trip isn't as much about site seeing as it is about getting there quickly and then being in Cali. I was just wondering if anyone could give us any tips or advice for beginners, and let us know what is the quickest we could safely and realistically get there. Also anything we may not think of bringing that will be important etc.. We will be flying back to massachusetts from Cali, so a we dont have to worry about the return trip.
Thanks for any help!
