    Do you think it would be completely mad to do a 3 week driving holiday from San Diego to San Francisco? I think it would be about 22/23 hours straight doing the coast road. I'm thinking it would be doable, we've done a lot of driving in the US

    Oh... taking California Route 1?

    I think that would be spectacular.

    And a 3 week trip would give you ample time to get off the highway and see some of the sights. I'd love to do something like that.

    I agree with Tom. This would make for a lovely 3 week trip. There is so much to see and do.

    Talking of looooong road trips, I`d really love to do Route 66 sometime...even though many parts of it are difficult to find nowadays.
    I`m pretty sure that I would need more than 3 weeks to do it though taking account of the sightseeing involved along the way.

    That's great, now to sell it to the main driver! This wont be for a couple of years. Just starting to think about it. How long would you have in LA? How many days at DIsneyland and is it worth going to universal? Don't want to waste a day there if its just the same as Orlando.

    Agreed. Wanted to do that FOREVER. Interesting about bits of it being hard to find nowadays?

    I stayed in St. Louis a few years ago on a business trip and I was booked into a hotel that was actually on Route 66.
    They had re-modelled a stretch of the road nearby exactly how it used to be in the "good old days" which was very interesting.
    I get the impression that Route 66 is a bit like travelling from A to B over here. Many years ago my Mum and I went to Blackpool each year for our holidays. As this was before the M6 it involved several hours driving on a bus from our home in Stoke through Warrington, Wigan and Preston etc.etc.
    Nowadays, finding that old route is very difficult as you are continuously steered onto the M6, and I am told that the same applies in the US regarding Route 66.

    Ahhhhh wow sure I see what you mean

    I've read a lot of photo journals over the years which have charted and documented route 66 and it's always looked fascinating.
