I just came across this site and saw a few posts. I plan to do a roadtrip from Riverside Cty area to Burlington, Iowa using the southern states as much as possible due to the cold weather. Do any of you have any recommendations from the weather to places we should stop???? We will have chains but still not used to the cold weather, we need some advice. Also, ideas on places to stop, odd ball places like the Cadillac Ranch, in Texas!!! or any good food places!
