Hey there. I have made the trip from Texas to Portland by car at least 5 times, and I am once again moving back to OR from TX. This time, I would love to hear suggestions from others on routes. I usually go from dallas through OKC, Denver, SLC, Boise, and across Western Oregon. This time, I am considering driving west to the Grand Canyon (never been) and then up through Utah, Nevada or Cali.
It will be just me and my dog in 2017 Jetta - no trailer. Time isnít really an issue but Iíd like to do it in 4-5 days max. (I usually drive it in 2 days or less, which is a killer and Iím not as young as I used to be). Anyway, Iíd like to take time to see historical or natural landmarks. I canít afford pricey hotels, but I am pretty good at finding cheap ways to lodge on trips.
Any recommendations would be awesome!
