Brit needs advise Cali to Maine.
I have friends in LA and Maine. I am considering renting a bike or car and driving between the 2 in late august, early september.I will start in LA. I am not really bothered with R66 or any "nostalgia" stuff but would prefer some beutifull scenery and open roads. Ive heard Colorado is good for that. What about R40 ? How long would you say this would take, stopping every night and driving say 8 hours a day ? Is this realistic or should I get to say Chicago and fly to maine ? Any suggestions appreciated, thanks alot.
I-15 & I-70
For scenery, you can't beat I-15 and I-70 through Utah and Colorado, although I-40 is also very beautiful through Arizona and New Mexico. I can't give you the total driving hours off the top of my head, but for sightseeing and leisurely touring, I think you could do this trip in a bit less than a week -- maybe 5 to 6 days.
Personally, I would drive the entire distance because that is what I live for -- but for you it depends on how much you like motor-touring. If you think 3 or 4 days is enough, then you could certainly fly between Chicago and Maine. But the eastern USA is also gorgeous, if crowded, and I wouldn't miss it! Bob
Im looking at MS streets and trips and planning my trip with your comments in mind...Thanks
