From Utah to Virginia

If you were going to drive across the country from Utah to Virginia, which road would you take? What would you want to see the most? (Besides the "Virgins" I mentioned in Monday's post. Tee hee.)

I’m sure I’ll be telling you all about this opportunity in the coming months, but the short of it is my husband is going to do some specialized training in Quantico, VA, and because he’ll be there for an extended amount of time, he’s going to need a car.

This means he’s driving. And since he invited me(cuz, I don't know, I think he likes me or something), I’ve decided to drive with him, and then fly home. I love to travel, and this road trip is an opportunity to see parts of the country I’ve never visited.

So tell me. Which route will allow for the most impact in a few days? Help me out, here, friends. It's a given that I'll use what I see in my writing. And hey, maybe I’ll pick up some awesome blog giveaways while I’m at it.

Thoughts? Ideas?

Oh wow . . . I just bought plane tickets to avoid that drive.

I would probably take 70 since it goes almost the whole way, but 80 is smoother driving. I don't know the southern routes as well.

Good luck!

I'm from SC so I always took the southern route, but it's been forever. It's amazing to see the differences as you go across. We used 70, 40, and 20. 40 and 20 seem out of the way for you though.

I haven't traveled, like, at all, so I couldn't say, but my husband and I googled the shortest route through the entire 48 lower states, so you might try something like that. Hope you have a super time!

Drive through Kansas and pray for a lightning storm. You can see forever in KS, so the lightning is spectacular!
