I will be traveling from phoenix, az to greenwood, sc (borders georgia) sometime in late june/early july with one exception, I will have one companion, a 100 lb. lab with me. :) Can anyone make any recommendations as to what route I should take and hotels which are pet-friendly? I have driven the I-10 to and from, this time I am trying to make this trip as short as possible. Ideally, I would not like to drive more than 8-10 hours per day. Thanks! Any help is appreciated!!!
