First, this is really a nice forum. It's fun to read about people's roadtrip plans.
I have an idea for a summer roadtrip that I would like some input on:
Start: Eugene, Oregon
Major Stops (in this order):
Salt Lake City
End: San Francisco
-Google Maps: Roughly 4000 miles.
-Average speed estimate of 40 MPH = 100 hours of driving
-8 hours of driving on drive days gives a total time estimate in car of 12.5 days.
If everything works out with my current visa (I'm an international student), I will have "unlimited time". If not, I will have around 25 days starting from June 16 because I have to go home on July 10.
My questions are:
1. Do you think 12 (whole) days would be enough to cover the different sites? "Enough" meaning minimum because I potentially have more time if I get to stay longer in the US.
2. Is my speed estimate too conservative?
3. Am I crazy? :-)
Thank you very much for your input!
