My girlfriend, 50 lbs dog, and I are planning to move to Hawaii and will be driving our car from Rochester NY to Los Angeles for shipping.
We are giving ourselves about 8 or 9 days to do the trip and have already done some research on hotels that accept dogs, expenses, etc.
This will be the first time either of us has done the cross country drive though we both have experience with long distance driving (6 hrs +).
We are wondering if anyone has advice on the best route possible and how long that might take. Is 8 or 9 days sufficient to take in a few sights as well (nothing major, just cheap day trips that can include our dog)?
