After spending a while reading and soaking up information from this forum I've finally embarked on my first cross country road trip! I am traveling alone in my classic 1968 Chevy, the ultimate highway cruiser.
So the first day I left my home on Long Island and headed straight to Pittsburgh, where I'm staying with some friends. The drive took a while because I was delayed and hit rush hour in NYC, then some rain in PA, but overall it was a good drive (albeit dark). I'm going to be staying here for the weekend and then heading out on Monday, but I'm not sure where to go! I'm thinking Chicago, but I might want to avoid big cities, haven't decided yet. Can anyone suggest cool places to go heading west from Pittsburgh?
My original plans were to go west along northern route, going through Yellowstone, but the cold weather and snow that's been hitting Wyoming is making me reconsider... I'm interested in route 66, which I know "begins" in Chicago, so I want to generally head in that direction.
Anyway, gonna do some sightseeing here now, but I hope to get some suggestions before I leave PA!
