I am planning a trip from NYC to San Diego, CA at the end of August. I have scheduled 8 days to do the trip and I want to drive no more than 8 hours a day. My first question is:
Is this a realistic amount of time? (According to google maps it is, but what do you think?)
Second, I am bit nervous about driving through the desert. My car is in good condition (99 Honda Accord v6) but it has relatively high mileage (130k). My current route is I-80 to I-76 to I-70 to I-15. I particularly concerned about breaking down during the I-70 to I-15 bit through Utah, Nevada and CA.
Should I be concerned about that?
Thanks very much for any advice!
