I have recently accepted a promotion with requires me to move to California from Atlanta. I'm absolutely thrilled about the promotion because I absolutely love the Bay Area.
I've basically sold everything in my house and have already found a renter for my home for the next 16 month (things are really coming together). So now I'm preparing for my next part of this promotion which is the actual move.
Since I've sold everythign I've decided that instead of shipping my car and flying I'm going to take the drive - just me an my daschund Heidi.
I was wondering if anyone on her has ever done the Southern Drive across country. There are things I definitely want to do along the way. I haven't been to New Orleans since the late 90's so I'd like to drive through there and have a look. I'll probably have to stop in Dallas for a night (our corporate offices are there and I'll have meetings to attend). I want to make a stop in either Santa Fe or Albuqureque (maybe both). I want to see the Grand Canyon and spend a night in Vegas as well.
Can anyone provide some tips or maybe some other sights I may not want to miss along the way? Do you think a week will be enough to do this trip?
Any suggestions would be helpful.
