GO TO THE SOUTH. It's a different world. And parts of it are really gorgeous to drive through, too, like Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

meggie- we studied migration patterns within the United States and only like 4% of successful (being defined as people staying in their new place for 10+ years) migrations happen when people from the north moved south and vice versa.

i just thought that was interesting.


carry on.

another handy highway - highway 90

Then go through the UP and upper Wisconsin, go into Duluth (take highway 2 all across Wisc, takes you right to Duluth) and go 35E south. 35 will get you to the Twin Cities, and if you keep following it, all the way down to Louisiana.
Silly girl.....35 (and not E, just 35) will take you all of the way to Dallas. Highway 61 (Highway 61 Revisited - Dylan) will take you from Duluth to Baton Rouge. Of course, it connects with a number of Interstates, like 35 and 55. It more or less follows the Mississippi.

How about Route 66?

Pukebreath, since I can't PM you, give me some time and I'll come up with some good stuff for you. It's a busy weekend at chez Martha, so it'll probably be sometime next week.

Because they don't seem as fun in England/Europe, for some reason.

I disagree!

You have the Autobahn in germany.
They have the crazy Rally races all over Europe.
And have you ever seen any of those crazy 60's English movies with the high speed car chases in cool convertables? The English rock at making GREAT cars - you better believe they know something about road trips.

You should join us this summer for the road trip to v2003!

America is a great place for road trips (perhaps why all of Wim Wenders' "road movies" take place here). Europe is great for train trips, IMO.

Yeah, but you won't be quarrantined there; a trip to the US can be arranged for the future!

The car chase DOES sound fun....

I can't afford to go to v2003, but I DO want to meet up with you guys at some point. I'm not sure yet whether I'll be living in London or in Norwich in August.

I did a fantastic road trip in may last year which lasted a month. It took in pretty much most of the american west, and it was camping (apart from in the cities). I did it with a trek company though - but you could check out their website - it might give you some ideas.

here's a link to the trek I did:

not sure if that's any use to you, but you never know!

Many thanks to all. I'm going to check out that link too Lu.

I think we're shooting for mostly camping in the western states.
