Hello...glad I found you all...appears to be many experienced road travelers here.
My wife and I (with dog) make an annual drive out to San Diego from Toronto. Typically we make the drive in four 10-11 hour days stopping for dinner and a good night sleep at decent chain hotels. This year we have three weeks available and have decided to do the drive using as little or no interstate highways as possible.
I was looking for advice on sites to see, things to do and places to stay that you have experienced.
