I'm a brand new forum member, hoping to gather information about a road trip I plan to take for research for a story I'm writing. I want to rent a convertible for the drive, so weather is a concern.
I'd like to fly to Phoenix, drive through to LA, up through CA to Highway 50, then follow 50 straight through to Colorado and fly back to New York. My original plan was to go in June, but I've been told that the temperatures will be pretty hot.
My options if the temps in southern CA are too warm:
Skip southern CA and fly to norther CA, then do only the Hwy 50 portion of the drive. I don't mind doing this. The only reason I was doing southern CA is because my mom flies to Phoenix for her job and can get me a companion fare price - the savings is less than I would save by eliminating the whole southern CA leg of the journey. Hwy 50 is the REAL reason for the trip.
Wait until October to take the trip
I guess what I'm wondering is if Highway 50 itself is uncomfortably hot to drive in a convertible during the month of June.
I will heartily welcome any advice offered! Thanks so much!
