I am new to the site and would really appreciate and advice or tips any of you have. The roadtrip I have planned is admittedly moronic. So......please do not bash it. I already agree.
Ok, so here is the story. A couple of years ago a few of my friends and I were having a couple of drinks in a bar in Union Square NYC. My firend James and I are the only two in our circle who really like road trips. Not really sceneic road trips but fast ones to a certain place to see something cool and than a quick turn around. We started out with going to places like maine for lobster and philly for cheesesteaks etc. So anyways, back to the bar. The topic of our moronic roadtrips came up. We were touting our record speed in getting to places. We would always get there alot faster than mapquest would outline and never by exceeding the speed limit too much.
Than came the dare. Make it to LA from NYC in less than 48 hours. There was no backing down. We know we can do it. and will make sure it is done in even less.
So far, we have booked a rental car (pontiac grand am) from Avis using airport to airport dropoff with unlimited miles. It is costing us about 400 just for the car which was the best deal we could find. We are leaving thursday night June 2 from NYC. Our return flight from LAX is at 12pm Sunday on delta song. Giving us about 19 hours of leeway factoring in the three hours we gain in time zone changes.
Now....it all comes down to the route. How should we do this? Since we are going to La route 80 is out so we are looking at a mapquest route that takes us south. Gonna be hot in June.
Any tips or advice will be greatly appreciated. O yeah...the proof will be gas receipts off my amex. They will show date time and location.
I Look forward to your responses.
