Re: route 66 cross country road trip--anyone ever done this?
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.
