route 66 cross country road trip--anyone ever done this?
 
If anyone has ever done this, tell me a little about it. Is it great, or a bit overrated? Aiming to get some buds together to do this in a few months (hopefully).

Or just give me cross country road trip advice in general. Always been a big dream of mine. I've been out to California before, but haven't seen any of the countryside between Chicago/L.A.

What are some things to keep in mind?

Never done it myself, but I once watched a horror movie about a couple people that did. Based on what happened to them, I can't really recommend it.

ive been all over, but never on that highway. i think the best thing to do would be to pick a handful of things along the way that you guys want to check out and route it out that way.

I LOVE ROUTE 66!

then again... giant kitsche has a special place in my heart. that, and the american SW. but it really helps to be with the right people. as in, if you have nobody interesting to share the humor with then the humor is basically half as fun. dig?

but i went on three cross-country east-to-west road trips in my life and they all kicked major ass. i mean, it all starts with a love of seeing the landscapes and the people of the different regions of the US.

this was fun to look up / plan around crazy shit to see as you drive around:

Roadtrips are shit if you don't have a spacious car. Cramped as **** in a camry. Hated it.

I heard long trainrides with progressive house music and a plastic bag filled with firecrackers( think weed brownies but with Graham Crackers) is an otherwordly experience.

Can you stream Netflix? If yes look in documentaries; there is a fairly recent six-part doc that you should watch called Billy Connolly's Route 66. If you are not familiar with him, Billy is a legendary comedian and this documentary follows him as he takes the entire trip from Chicago to LA. It might help you decide if this is the trip for you and, if so, what you might want to see along the way.

Took a road trip last summer with my gf. We took some of route 66 but not most of the way.

We started out in Dallas and stopped at the following places: Albuquerque, Grand Canyon, Seqouia National Park (CA), Mammoth Lakes (CA), Yosemite, San Francisco, Bridgeport, CA, Zion National Park, Black Canyon National Park, Great Sand Dunes National Park, some random ass lake in Kansas, Mark Twain National Forest (MO), Mammoth Cave National Park (KY), Atlanta, Florida.

Was honestly a blast. Saved a lot of money by camping in national parks every night except when in the big cities. Was a great experience and get to see how different people are in the same country.
