we're 2 girls trying to fit in a trip from connecticut to california and back in 2 weeks. we realize we won't be able to dilly-dally. but we hope to fit in a couple days of seeing things, and maybe snowboarding too somewhere in there. i've been getting a lot of "that's not possible" remarks. you guys know better. what do you think? any suggestions? thanx.
Do you like to sleep?
CT to California. If you drive round the clock -- stopping only for fuel (eating only when the car needs fuel) it will take just under six days of round trip travel. Need to cover roughly 1002 miles per day. I-80 will be your best bet to cover ground quickly.
Snowboarding? Snow is melting quickly -- Some of the higher elevation resorts in Colorado are still open and reporting Spring conditions. Utah & California are mostly closed although Mammoth Mountain is still open.
Best route to reach snow -- Exit I-80 at Julesberg Colorado proceed via I-76 to I-70 and head for higher rockies.
Yes, this trip is doable -- but you will be tired.
