Norwegians on GRR and RT66

hi Road Tripper!

we are a couple from Norway going to USA for a month by car. We are flying to Washington DC, renting a car there and drive up to wisconsin to visit some relatives. From there we thought to take route 66 and drive to LA and drive up to San Fransisco and take plain from there

We are waiting for ur new book about USA where i hope i will get stuffs about where to drive. we love to drive small and cosy ways, and dont want to hurry

do u have any suggestions where we should drive, what to see, where to eat and where to sleep ??

Hello Robbie -- and thank you for writing in to Road Trip USA.

I hope you have had a chance to check out my book and website, because I think they'll have lot of the info you are searching for.

As far as specific route suggestions, the Great River Road is a great drive, and a way to get from Wisconsin onto Route 66 -- the small towns of LaCrosse and Galena IL are very nice places to explore.

Further south, you can hop onto old Route 66 in St Louis, then follow it all the way to LA (via the Grand Canyon and amazing redrock deserts of northern Arizona!)

North from LA, the coastal route up to SF is lovely (make sure you follow Hwy-1 thru "Big Sur", the stretch of coast between San Luis Obispo and Monterey!)

Let me know if you have any trouble getting my books -- which have lots of good ideas about places to see / stay / eat / enjoy along the way, as well as 40,000 miles of suggested drives all over the USA.

Happy Trails,

Jamie Jensen
