Hello, first time posting. Been reading up on the site for a while, just now decided to reach out for help. Lots of it on here, looks great.
So, I am going to attempt a trip from San Diego to Omaha for Christmas. I have the crazy notion of doing it in 3 uneven days, and probably going to avoid the 70 due to weather. The first day, I've looked at is here to Holbrook, AZ. Looks to be 8-9 hours. I've done the Phoenix run lots of time, but never to the east of there. Assuming I do that, I was looking at a long haul on day 2. Maybe trying to make North Platte, NE. I figure 14-15 hours. I drive a lot for work, so not overly worried about that. The last day I finish up the last day with a 4-5 hour drive into Omaha.
Now, assuming I can hold close to that, and the southern route has good weather, is this totally unreasonable? The one main issue I have, which i am also looking for help with, is we will be bringing a dog. So I am looking for advice for pet friendly hotels and also dog parks along the way. The parks dont need to be anything crazy, just some place to give her a 15 minute run around for some exercise. Also wondering what to expect for weather over the southern end of the Rockies.
Anyway, hoping it'll work out. Thanks for any advice you may all have.
