This is my first road trip across the country. I will be leaving from the Buffalo NY area. My plan is to leave the 27 of Dec and not return to NY till Jan 21. I know the weather is going to be iffy.. but its the only time myself and friend can do take this long of a trip. we will be leaving NY and heading down to the smokies.. then from there go south west towards TX, then hit the lower end of co. come back into TX, hit Arizona, Las Vegas, then to Cali. drive up Cali .. go to or. and then head back towards the south to drive back. (to avoid the snow in the north-i know we will hit some though)
on the way back i would like to stop in Utah
Any input on this trip would be greatly appreciated. Locations to go, best routes, things we should do and SHOULDN'T do.
