ROAD TRIP! NY to SoCal Suggestions, Please!

Recommended Posts

So, being newly cutaway from a long-term relationship, I'm thinking of doing a 2-3 week skydiving road-trip to cheer myself up...I'd like to drive from NY to SoCal, definitely hitting The Ranch, Skydive PA, Wrigley Field, Chicagoland/SDC, Couch Freaks, Lincoln, Mile-Hi, Moab, Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Vegas, Perris, Elsinore and San D...

What do you guys reckon I'm missing? Any suggestions for sights to see along the way?

This is the route Google is suggesting...

Blue Ones,

Swoopert, CS-Aiiiiiii!

Yeah I looked at going that way, but the flights are hideously expensive...cos I'm flying out 27th September. I'd need to go west to east to make those boogies...

K-State added, although if I'm late, then I may not make it, as it's adding 4 hours to that day's drive!

So..it's looking like:

London - 1hr
Newark - 7hrs
The Ranch - 2hrs Nights 1, 2
Niagara Falls - 6hrs
Aerohio - 4hrs Night 3
Skydive Greene County - 3hrs Night 4
Wrigley Field
Chicagoland - 6hrs Night 5
SDC - 1hr Night 6
Couch Freaks - 6hrs
Lincoln - 3hrs Night 7
Skydive Kstate - 4hrs
Mile-Hi - 8hrs Nights 8,9
Moab - 8hrs Night 10
Grand Canyon - 6hrs
Hoover Dam - 3.5hrs
Vegas - 1hr Night 11
Perris - 4hrs Night 12
Elsinore - 30m
San Diego - 2 hrs Night 13
LA - 2 hrs Night 14
London - 11hrs
Edinburgh 1hr - Night 15

Here it is!

70 hours of driving over 12 driving days (6hrs a day) to cover 4,050 miles...at 58mph!

Looks like I'll need to find me a driving buddy!
Swoopert, CS-Aiiiiiii!
