    Default cross country road trip

    My wife and I will leave San Diego Ca Sept 21 on a 7000 mile road trip crossing 16 states(some twice) returning to San Diego Oct 14.Our route includes US 50 from Lamar, CO to St Louis,then interstates to Detroit,Montreal,Vermont,New Hampshire,Mass.,then down to Virginia to visit our son and back home.No specific route back decided,but we would take suggestions.We have road trip experience and know that on this trip we must allow at least 16 of the 24 days for driving.We will be driving a 1978 Corvette prepared for this trip.(nothing over 70 mph,I promise).

    Default Can it really go that slow?

    Richard,

    Wow -- a 1978 'Vette -- cool machine for a road trip -- a bit tight for storage tho. Actually I didn't know a 'Vette could travel as slow as 70 mph on the open road -- must be better breeding or something.

    The road back -- if it were me -- I would take US-2 -- all across the northen tier of the country. Relatively un-traveled -- long stretches for the 'Vette to relax on --

    On the other hand, the Everglades should not be missed and New Orleans is really fun, not to mention our personal favorite -- Terlingua in Texas.

    Have a blast!

    Got to through Houston man. Also, you might want to go through Atlanta, beautiful country there. Also, I-20 goes from Atlanta to the west coast somewhere.

    Default West of Pecos, at least

    I-20 doesn't quite make it to the west coast. It deadends into I-10 just west of Pecos, TX. It begins its westward direction just east of Florence, North Carolina.. But it does pass thru Atlanta.

    Default "Close" is open to interpretation

    The closest I-20 gets to Terlingua is Pecos. From there it is still 184 miles to Terlingua. In the 'Vette the distance could be covered in 3 hours.
