I found your site while searching for tips on making it on a 4-day trip to California. I will be accompanying a friend in a cross-country drive to cali because he will be teaching in USC this fall. The thing is I dont drive but I navigate well and I can be really talky. Haha. So he'll be driving those 2800 miles all the way and we're planning to do it in 4 days. Since he is still busy doing his preparations with this move, I took the task of mapping our itinerary for this trip. I was hoping to get your inputs, comments, what to watch for, whats nice to see in the stops that we are making as well as web links to resources that isn't here in the website. I've been navigating this site all morning and I would like to give my sincerest gratitude to the moderators ...its a great help!
Anyways, here's a proposed route:
Day 1 - NYC to Dayton, OH
Day 2 - Dayton to Tulsa
Day 3 - Tulsa to Scottsdale, AZ
DAy 4 - Scottsdale, AZ to CA
Anything to be wary of with this proposed route? My friend is prepared to do 15 hours of driving since he really wants to go to CA as soon as possible. (day 3 is the most grueling drive so far).
I will appreciate any comments on this.
