Hi! This summer I want to take my son on a crosscountry roadtrip from SC to California and back over the course of three weeks. He begins his senior year of high school next year, so this is my last shot at the whole Grand Canyon, San Francisco, Painted Desert trip. I need lots of advice.
First, is it safe for a single female and a young man to travel that far alone? I've traveled on business a lot but always by plane. I want to go, but I don't want to run into trouble along the way.
Second, is there a particular route you would recommend? I want to experience as much of the country as possible. I've tried to map it out and I'm afraid I will miss something great. I also want to see the quirky things along the way. My son wants to go to Luchenbach Texas but I don't see that on the map. How do I plan whether or not to go toward Dallas or San Antonio to be closest to such a small random town?
Thank you for your help!!
