So me and my best friend, Alex, have wanted to go on a road trip for several years now. We are finally making our dream come true! We are planning on a cross-country road trip from May to June 2009 (4-5 weeks). We are very serious about this trip and we hope nothing gets in the way of us going. We have been planning for about a month now, we already have a huge list of things we need to bring, etcetc..
Our planned route at this point (but might change on the way) is:
Pennsylvania (home) to Jacksonville, FL (along with other destinations on the way down the east coast)
FL to New Orleans, LA
LA to San Antonio, TX
TX to Denver and Boulder, CO
CO to Grand Canyon, AZ
AZ to Las Vegas, NV
NV to San Diego and LA, CA
CA to Portland, OR
OR to Seattle, WA
WA to Glacier National Park, MT
MT to Yellowstone National Park, WY
WY to Chicago, IL
IL back to PA (home)
This trip will roughly be about 8,500 miles (not including back roads, cities, etc) but we will most likely end up doing somewhere between 9,000-10,000 miles.
We are taking a 2005 Toyota Rav4 with just over 30,000 miles on it. It is a very reliable car and I think it will be great for a road trip this long...not to mention great gas mileage! =)
All comments/suggestions/criticisms are welcome and appreciated!! Thanks for looking. Hope to hear from some of you!
