    Default TN to CA; what to do along the way??

    My wife and I are driving the Jeep from Clarksville, TN all the way to Highland,CA for Xmas to see my mother. We will be on the I-40 most of the way (between Memphis and California). We want to stop at a couple of places along the way, just to sight see or something to use the Jeep on. We will try and hit one or two going out and a couple of different place coming back.
    Does anyone have any suggestions??

    Thanks
    - Josh

    I dont know exactly where its located, but if I was doing that ride, I would try to find Route 66 and try that. They have all kinds of neat little things to do along that...

    What's your time factor in traveling?
    There are plenty wheeling adventures in between the two points depending on your travel.
    Is wheeling or site seeing more important for this one?

    Stop in Oklahoma at the Route 66 Museum! You'll see signs for it way before you get there. Also, just before you get into Texas there is a little town that they claim was used as the model for the town in the movie cars. There are tons of things to see and do! It's a great trip. I came across country in March/April from WV to CA. Just watch the billboards! Awesome trip! Have fun and be safe!!!

    Do you plan on coming thru Vegas? If you are let me know. Maybe we can meet up and have a couple of beers. Could be fun meeting some of the members in person.

    All right, I was in Walmart about an hour ago, and in the rag 4 wheel drive and sport utility, they actually have an article about wheeling off of route 66....

    If you are taking I-44 enroute to I-40 then get ahold of me and a handful of others here. There are 2 ORP's with in 30 miles of I-44.
