Hi everyone! I've enjoyed reading through all of the threads, and would now like some critique on my own trip. Also, we are planning on spending the majority of our time camping/sleeping in the car. We do have hotels booked for the major cities (LA, Las Vegas) that we plan to spend a few days in.
On September 10th+11th my Boyfriend and I will be driving from Atlantic Canada to New York City, it's about a 12 hour drive. From there, this is our approx. Schedule;
September 10 --- Smell ya Later Canada!
drive to Bangor,drive til 12am, sleep in car
September 11--- Wake up early and drive, arrive in NYC in the afternoon
September 12 --- New York City
(during this time we were actually considering parking our car at JFK and just taking the train into the city, as it seems much cheaper for parking to do this!)
September 13 -- this day is open to do whatever we want..spend some more time in the city, head towards our next destination....or even maybe Washington?
September 14 --- Leave in the morning and drive to Philadelphia
(we have to be in Phili on this day as we have tickets to a concert)
September 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 --- Drive to Las Vegas
This is going to be a long stretch, and we were thinking of driving 8 hours a day.... but maybe a little more on some days to cut back on driving on others
September 20th--- we need to be in Las Vegas on this day by dinner as we have Phantom of the Opera tickets to celebrate our anniversary
September 21st-22nd- Las Vegas (maybe one day for the grand canyon...i know everyone says you cant see it in one day but we're content with taking one of the day tours)
September 23- Drive to Burbank , as we have tickets to the Tonight Show
September 24- day trip to San Diego? Might leave after the Tonight show, or might spend the night in Burbank
September 25-- Los Angeles/Hollywood
September 26-- Los Angeles/Hollywood
September 27--Los Angeles/Hollywood --- need to be here on this day as we have Price is Right tickets
September 28--- Wake up early and drive to San Franscisco, just spend the day or one night, depending on how long we want to stay there
September 29-30-1- Yosemite National Park
Head Home -- 60 hours or driving spread out over
Oct 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
This should get us home by Friday, and we head back to work on Monday.
