Howdy Guys and Gals, greetings from the big D :-)
We just decided to take a roadtrip leaving Thursday in 2 weeks....It will be 3 of us driving a 2008 dodge charger rental....
I figure flying to Albuquerque to pick up the car and cut 1000miles of the trip.
So out trip will be something like this:
Dallas to Albuquerque by plane (early morning)
Albuquerque to Roswell (First day)
Roswell to San Diego (night drive - shift sleeping)
San Diego to LA pasific highway 5
LA to Where the bonnie and clyde car is...
Wherever the car is to vegas (stay a couple of days of course)
Area-51/ET highway and death valley....day trip
Vegas to Grand Canyon....Utah...Or arizona side
GC to Durango, CO for the steam train ride....
and back to Albuquerque and back to Dallas
I'd like some help with what to do on this trip....We all like "crazy" stuff and the 3'rd guy is flying here from Europe and has no clue about this trip. We would much rather hike in GC than gamble in Vegas. The 2 of us from Dallas spent years together in tents during service to uncle sam. Money is not really a subject but we want to make this trip for our European friend unforgettable. He is also a military guy, loved xfiles in the day goes canoing etc.
Please help, we only have 2 weeks to plan....Only overnight drive with no hotel is the first night. I figure we will be so exited that we do the worst part of the trip the firast day....
Any help is good help
