I'm still in the middle of planning my epic US road trip. My parents want to "review" my itinerary, which is code for "tell me where to go and what to do". Uh oh!
At the moment, there are two big decisions up for debate. Feel free to weigh in.
1. I need to get from Austin, Texas, to St. Louis, Missouri. There are two feasible routes. One is a three-day trip heading northeast; it'd take me from Austin to Dallas, to Little Rock, to St. Louis. The other route is a five-day trip, heading east, then north; it'd take me to Houston, to New Orleans, to Jackson, to Memphis, to St. Louis. It'd be really nice if I could shave two days off my trip by taking the shorter route.
2. Someone brought up the possibility of me doing the trip in reverse. What do you think, should I travel the US clockwise or counter-clockwise? The first major destination in one direction is Disneyland; the first major destination in the other is Seattle.
