im new here and im taking a trip--moving, actually--from new york city to seattle in december 2006. we're gonna make a raod trip out of it. we're gonna take about 12-14 days, i wish it was longer but the holidays and family obligations interfere.
anyway, im writing looking for suggestions for cool routes, attractions, food, etc. the one caveat is that we're not staying north, we are definitely stopping in st. louis, missouri to visit my family. so it basically looks like this: leave nyc on dec 10 or 11 to arrive in st louis on december 14th or so. since we're leaving the east coast we want to meander from nyc to st louis. so suggestions for this leg of the trip are greatly appreciated.
then we leave st louis on december 18th or 19th to arrive in seattle on december 24, so suggestions for brief excursions are welcome here.
