Good Morning/Afternoon all,
Myself and four of my friends, all guys, in our mid 20's - are hitting the USA later this year - I have come up with a very rough schedule - and would appreciate any input, positive/negative on this, and any other advice or reccomendations will certainly be taken on board....! Its is mainly based around route 66, but with a detour down to PHX, and back up to Las Vegas.
Wed 23rd October - Will be leaving Chicago and look to reach Springfield and stay the night
24th - St Louis
25th - St Louis again or straight to OKC?
26th - OKC City - hope to catch OKC Sooners V Texas Tech college football
27th - Amarillo/Tucamari
28th - Alberquerque
29th - Sante Fe
30th - Gallup
31st - Flagstaff or Sedona
Nov 1st -
2nd - Canyon / Mon Valley
5th - Phoenix - will be watching the coyotes NHL game
6th - Kingman/Oatman
7th - 3 days in Vegas
We have already booked the hotels either side of Chicago and Vegas - so those dates cant be changed, and as you can see, the dates are slightly booked around catching some sport games out there - these were the only ones reastically we could catch...
The blank days in early November are mainly to give us a few days to take in the Grand Canyon and surrounding areas, but also in case we find we are having a great time in one place and want to stay there another day..
Finally we are all young (!!!) and obviously will occasionally be persuaded on route by areas that may have a bit of a nightlife/some bars - however that is NOT the main reason for the trip and we are all more than interested in experiencing the quiet side of things/different sights etc
Many Thanks for those who have taken time to read, and reply!
