we're looking at doing route 66 in april '09 and would appreciate some advice and info on the drive.
plan is to rent a convertible to pick up from jfk and pick up the old route at chicago, drop off at lax, then fly from lax to cancun for spring break for a few days. we'll be 25 and are having trouble finding somewhere to rent a car. there are some nice new convertibles, but we really want a classic like a ford mustang or a cadillac.
other option is to rent an rv and save on hotel/motel costs. to be honest it is partly just an excuse to drink every night on a good holiday and see some amazing sights and have a brilliant experience.
roughly set 1st-14th april to drive the route, then if we go to cancun for spring break we'd stay 'till the 20th down there. in fact, on that note- is there anywhere that would be better for spring break?
any advice on any aspect of the route would be great,
george, john, paul and ringo.
