I am making my first pilgrimage to Omaha for Warren Buffett's Annual General Meeting on the 1st of May -- and I'm coming all the way from Australia.
I have decided to rent a car and make the trip from LA to Omaha then on to New York.
I leave LA on Monday the 28th of April, will spend a night or two in Vegas and have to arrive in Omaha on Friday evening. I spend the weekend in Omaha and then have another week to make my way to New York.
Here's a rough guide worked out on the run!
First week (Monday to Friday)
LA to Las Vegas
Las Vegas to Grand Junction
Grand Junction to Denver
Denver to Omaha
Notes: I may spend a couple of days in Vegas, and go to the rockies.
Second Week (Sunday to Sunday)
Omaha to Chicago
Chicago to Detroit
Detroit to Washington
Washington to New York
Notes: My 'must do's' are Omaha, Las Vegas, Detroit and Washington -- everything else I am flexible on (and I like to drive :)). A bit sad I won't make it down South or Route 66!
This forum has some very experienced travelers, so any thoughts on my itinerary (and changing it if need be) would be greatly appreciated.
I need help!
