Hi Everyone,

My friend and I are moving from Boston to San Diego in September. We're hoping to make it out there in 5-6 days. We know we need to drive about 8 hours a day. We have a rough idea of the route we want to take, but could definitely use some help with the planning.

We're thinking of driving down I-81 and hooking up with I-40. Would you recommend taking I-40 the rest of the way? We wanted to drive on Route 66 for the experience, is that feasible given our time constraints? If it is, where would you recommend getting on? We like the idea of the Southern route, but we're open to any ideas and suggestions. Thanks a lot!
