I really love this forum. Its great. I've spent so much time reading since discovering it. I can't wait to get out on the road. I have a list of road trips I'd like to do. For me, the joy is in the driving. I just love to be in the car on the open road.
So far, I have-
The Mother Road- Rt 66 from Chicago to LA
The Original- Rt 50 from Sacramento to Ocean City, Md
The Rockies Run- Tracing the Rockies on Rt 93 from Banff to Mexico
However, the one that I've really been thinking about the most is what I call the Great Circle Route. I live in Seattle so it would be-
Seattle to Boston on I 90
Boston to Miami on I 95
Double back to North Florida and then Florida to LA on I 10
LA back to Seattle on I 5
I calculated it out at just under 9000 miles including a very short detour from Rapid City to Mt. Rushmore and another in NE because I've always wanted to visit Ben and Jerry's. LOL
I figure it would take a solid month.
Has anyone ever tried this route?
