This will be my fourth cross-country trip between Los Angeles and Boston. The previous three were all done via interstate (mostly 40) and I've grown a bit weary of it, so I was thinking about picking up US 50 in Tahoe and taking it all the way across to Maryland and then 95 to Boston.
I was thinking about taking approx. 10 days for the trip, but I wanted to check that doing it in that length of time off the interstates is even worthwhile since I like to meander. What do you think? I might be able to take a bit longer if I decided to do some camping since money and not time is the issue here (damn gas prices). I'll be leaving around Oct. 15th. Camping should still be fine for at least a few weeks right? Not too cold?
I'll be traveling solo with dog.
Thanks! And any other suggestions welcome.
