Am heading over to your fair country in a couple of months and am road-tripping from LAX to the GC, via Vegas and through Death Valley & Yosemite to San Fran at the beginning of May. Have been reading up on the threads (since that seems a pretty common route :) ) and have gotten some good ideas on things to look out for, so thanks for that. :)
I do have a question concerning the LA-Flagstaff section of the drive. We're trying to take Route 66 as much as possible; I've downloaded the GPS route for it so hopefully won't have too much trouble staying on it, but I'm hoping y'all can give me a some pointers on a couple of things, namely:
- Sections of the Route that I definitely shouldn't miss
- Sections that would be better to avoid/aren't really worth seeing/could take days.
Don't mind taking it slow but am still pretty much counting on getting to the Grand Canyon in the one day.. deosn't seem like that should be too difficult but would welcome all your tips, etc.. :)
