Hi folks...I stumbled across this message board while looking for a guide to interesting stops along the way between Southern Indiana (my home) to Los Angeles (my future home).
I'm leaving January 2nd, and have no set date to arrive, but I figured it at around the 6th or 7th. I plan to head South first, in the hopes of avoiding any nasty Winter weather, then just do a straight shot West through I-40 out of Nashville, TN.
I'm particularly interested in New Mexico and Arizona: Wild West towns, Indian trading posts, etc. I don't care how touristy the stops are, I just wanna exit the interstate for a meal, have my picture taken inside a frontier jail cell, buy some beads and a tomahawk, and be on my merry way.
