Hello! What a great find this site is!
My 20 year old daughter decided suddenly to drive from our home in Louisiana to Los Angeles where she has a friend living there and plans to work and stay a while. She wanted to do it alone which is out of the question for me- but I'm thinking about riding with her and flying back.
She was thinking about driving from here to El Paso in one day and then driving from El Paso to LA the next day. I was thinking because of the desolate areas and desert and how long the trip is that it needs to be broken up into 2 or 3 days at least. home to San Antonio, San Antonio to Tucson, and then to LA- or 3 days- home to San Antonio, to El Paso, to Phoenix, and then to LA-
I'd love some advice from people who have driven the route about where'd you stop based on how freaking long it is- and what a normal human could take driving all day!!!!!
I'd love to stop and see some sights but I don't know if we'll have time- but if there are things you wouldn't miss along the way that wouldn't take much time to visit- like if we wanted to take a driving break- let me know that too!
