I see threads for almost every category so this seemed prevalent enough to have it's own. So this past summer I went on a cross country trip. I started in D.C., flew to Los Angeles and drove back to D.C. in a rental car in about 9 days. The breakdown went something like: Day 1: LA Day 2: Vegas Day 3: Vegas Day 4: Denver Day 5: Kansas City Day 6: St. Louis/Chicago Day 7: Chicago Day 8: Chicago Day 9: Driving back to D.C. So where have you been, NT? Post some pics and tell some stories. Where do you want to go? I'm sure there's someone here who's been (or lives there) who can get you headed in the right direction.
