DL Summer Road trip!

Where would you like to drive to get away from it all and where would you like to stop along the way? Who would go with you? Name the song that will be your road trip theme.

Somewhere in northern New Mexico listening to old U2.

I drove cross country twice: from CA to DC in 1978 and from DC back to CA in the late eighties. Both times I was relocating. Now I want to do it again, but at a more leisurely pace. I'd like to take the northern route this time.

If I had enough time and money for a serious summer road trip, I'd like to avoid the heat and drive across the northern US from coast to coast.

Starting with Portland and Seattle, I'd take a leisurely drive through the scenic parts of Idaho and Montana, before doing some real hiking in the Rocky Mountains. Then the Dakota Badlands, the Great Lakes, and on to New England. I've never been to New England, and I'd kick around there until the glorious fall arrived, then I'd spend some time in Boston and NY before flying home.

Well, you asked.

I'd explore the culture of the Anasazi. Mesa Verde, Acoma Pueblo, Canyon de Chelly, Old Oraibi, Chaco Canyon, Montezuma Castle, Homolovi, Hovenweep, Taos Pueblo...but ONLY if it is an off year for Hantavirus.

Have never driven across the US, but of the half-dozen friends who have, most say it's fun...

Until it's not. Apparently you reach a point in the western states--those wide, flat, western states--where you think you will literally die of boredom.

So, no: I don't think I ever need to drive across country.

Through the sweltering South, of course, swampier and sweatier than a convict's armpit, taking a long, meandering path to New Orleans through pokey towns with tree-lined streets, fourth-string cities, and tumble-down Greek Revivals, then back, armed with a stack of tear-outs from Garden & Gun magazine, a powerful thirst, and a soundtrack of Ryan Adams and Son Volt.

I'm leaving in a three weeks on a road trip and I can't wait. My song is Route 66 by Depeche Mode.

Hint 1: Nokia Drive (beta) is worthless. Stick with Google maps.

Hint 2: It's construction season in the snow belt. Many routes are fucked up for maintenance.

Hint 3: Triple bag your dog shit. If you bring a pet and stop off on the side of the road, you probably do the right thing and pick up after her. Unfortunately, there are no garbage cans readily available, so you'll be carrying a steaming pile of shit with you for some distance before you find a rest stop.

Hint 4: Nobody in the rest area ever looks like a porn star. They're all skeevy.
