Hey everyone, my name is Mark and i'm new to the board. Just to let you know a bit about me; my friend and I recently graduate college and got an apartment in San Diego, CA. We are planning to drive out there on January 8th and getting there b/t January 15-16th. I have never done anything like so I could sure use some advice. Since we're going in the winter I thought it best to take a southern route, not sure which one to take though, I was thinking either route 40 or we could take the 20 into the 10 then take the 8 into San Diego (this is a bit farther south). My concern about the 40 would be a greater chance of winter weather. Has anyone done a similar drive??? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone knows some good stops on those routes I would love to hear it (the only stop I wanted was the grand canyon but that looks to be about a day out of the way).
