So am planning to buy a used car in Detroit and drive it back home to San Francisco. Aiming to do it over the upcoming long weekend for Memorial Day, that's 3 days + take a day or two off work=4/5 days. Don't want to stop much, might have friends accompanying me to share with the driving.
What in your opinion is a better scenic driveby route? Want to stay off interstates and get the real stuff.
I'm deciding between the Northern route (Detroit - Chicago - Madison - Badlands - Denver - Salt Lake City - Reno - SF)
vs Southern (Detroit- Chicago - Route 66)
Where do you feel if I don't stop much I won't be losing out on much? I know Yellowstone requires a day or two hence kept it off my northern list. It's a tip of the iceberg trip to come back for more. I think I'm leaning towards the Northern route but if I'm rushing through it then I'll do the Southern one.
Thanks in advance!!
