Hi there. I am new here and very glad ot have found this site. I, along with my wife and three cats, are relocating to Chicago in a week's time. We have a professional moving service doing the bulk of the move for us but I don't want to leave the car behind and we have decided to drive it across country. It is a small coupe but reliable.
I have about 5 days to do the trip more if necessary but I would like to strike a medium between getting there promptly but also having the option of some scenic/romantic stops along the way. It's not often you cross a huge country like this and it seems a shame not to take the opportunity to check it out a little.
So any advice would be greatly welcome on the best route to take. I think I would like to take a flat route because I worry about the strain of steep mountain passes but I am likely over reacting. Thanks in advance for any help.
