We are two guys, both 27 years old, driving to New York City as my friend is going to Med School. We have a truck and are flexible about sleeping in camping sites or hotels. Our plan is to take route 40 to Nashville then the 81 to Washington DC then New York. We have about 8 days to get there. Our plan of now is:
Los Angeles to Albuquerque
Albuquerque to Little Rock/Memphis (play it by ear)
Little Rock to Nashville (rest day)
Nashville to Washington DC
DC to New York
Any recommendations on do's and dont's? We are open to other routes. Looking for good food, people, bars etc... We would love to see natural sites along the way. Thanks for the input!!
PS- We are leaving August 20th. Im assuming we will be driving through solar flares???
