4 of us, in a rented car, planning on driving from chapel hill NC, to California and back, over 5 weeks. Just looking for some general tips!
One fixed point in the trip is that we need to be at Denver, CO 7 days into the trip (friend flying out to join us). One note: 3 of us are foreigners, and so we want to see lots of spectacular landscapes (Kansas/Rockies/desert) and small towns. We are hoping to save money by camping a lot.
Here is a possible google map of our route
One question: as you can see, our route involves us coming back through texas. Is it instead possible to dip into mexico, drive through there for the width of texas, and then rejoin the USA?
