First off - you guys have a great site here. It's already given me a lot of good information.
I plan to do a road trip in October from Boston to LA, and was hoping that you could help me out a little. The trip needs to be in 17-18 days. Rough itinerary is:
New York (stay with friends)
Las Vegas with a trip to Zion Canyon if time permits
Routing I am looking at is I-70 from New York to St Louis, I-44 to Tulsa, I-40 to Vegas detouring to Monument Valley. Is there a better way to go? I am not particularly fussy about the route as long as it incorporates the above places.
Will I have time to do this road trip in the time frame, given that I wouldn't be comfortable driving more than 6 hours a day, though if there was a day that need a bit more that wouldn't be a problem.
Also, is there any part of the routing that would have unpleasant weather in October.
Thanks in advance for your help, and thanks for the great site.
