I am so excited that I found this forum.
My husband and I are actually accidental road-trippers. We never knew this would be a passion of ours.
Our first trip was in February 2014 and took us from eastern NC to Nashville, TN. We then traveled through Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and Utah to our final destination, Las Vegas, NV. When we left, we went through Arizona, New Mexico, up to Colorado and back home the same way that we went.
Our second trip was in December 2014 (when we got married in Vegas, on Christmas Eve!). We took I-40 all the way to Vegas, then back.
We are now planning yet another trip for December 2015, to Vegas via I-40 again. :)
Our last trip was pretty stressful because we pushed hard and only gave ourselves 3 days to get there. We still had a total blast, but I'm wondering if anyone has any advice to give us for this time to make things a little less stressful. We'll be staying in Vegas for 8 days this time instead of 3 last time, so we will have a lot more time to "rest up" before heading back.
