Hi @kapmsdr! You posted your question in the Los Angeles forum and you might be better served if you posted in the Road Trip forum (especially since LA doesn't appear to be on your itinerary).
Hello, Sharon, and a special welcome to TripAdvisor and to the Los Angeles forum, considering this is your first post with us.
Cross country driving is actually addressed in a forum devoted to cross country driving aficionados. . . the Road Trip forum! I'm still learning new things there. . . and there's some amazing road warriors there who have put on many thousands of miles in the United States, Canada, and even Europe. I would encourage you to post your question there as you already did here. That way you will get the benefit of their expertise. . . and let me tell you, there's some very knowledgeable folks there who you'd be delighted to hear from!
There's a high likelihood that a very friendly Angeleno forum member might decide to respond here. . . that's what we tend to do around here as we're a lively bunch and a fun group too. . . in a laid back SoCal beach bum desert rat kind of way. . . but sometimes we dunno what a real blizzard is. Some of us think it's only at Dairy Queen! (tee hee) And some of us have never even seen New Jersey, or know anything about the East Coast!
Sooooo. . . here's that Road Trip link: tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g1-i12567-Road_Tri…
Hope to see you there! Always glad to be of help.
Hi! Just wanted apologize if I sounded in any way abrupt. I was on my tablet and couldn't get the links to work but wanted you to have a better chance of getting detailed information on the Road Trip forum.
Thankfully, @underdog provided all that and more.
Dekage1. . . you did a wonderful job with your response, imho. I take into consideration that many of our lively, dynamic, and fun LA forum posters are folks at work, on the go, doing several things at once at any time of the day. . . And I operate from the perspective that anyone who is a forum regular of this LA forum is coming from a desire to help, not cause harm or something that brings about disharmony. So you did just fine under the circumstances. A tablet? My Sweet Polly Purebred finally got one from her office, but I'm still desktop bound.
Answering queries on the forums is one of the things I do while waiting for something else. . . like a rather important phone call. . . still waiting patiently. . . Meanwhile, revel in an "atta boy" from the desert 'dog! Woof! You're just faster than I am, that's all!
Gotta do more creative writing. . . got the itch. . . (smile)
Oh, Underdog, you are sooooo nice! Thank you for the lovely message. I just didn't want our OP to think I was giving them short shrift. Thank you for making me feel better.
Oh-My-God! All this mindless happiness! Chuck...
Welcome to the forum.
You're both retired and time is not an issue so why go in januari?
Thank you all for your responses!! As you can tell, I am a newie, and will address my trip in the road trip forum!! Keep up the good work!! Maybe I'll see you all in Los Angeles (or New Jersey) some day!!
