    I just planned a 7500kilometer road trip for my honeymoon from Fort mcmurray alberta Canada down the Pacific coast line to sandiego back up to Vagas, Yellowstone and back to Canada. Put 18000 km on the cat last year might just top that this summer I am beyond excited for this. Any must see thing or stops we should make a long the way? Will be from Sept 8th to 26th so fare got an nfl game planned in San Fran... this will be our first trip to the us

    Yosemite is beautiful. Definitely check it out. Some of the best hiking/scenery in the country there.

    That's Awesome. Driving along the PCH coast line. Slightly longer route but priceless views and scenery. By Vagas you mean Vegas. Right?

    Wish you could also cover Palm Springs (desert cities)area...awesome driving on the rte 111. Maybe something to consider next time.

    You could stop by Monterey, (beautiful place) Santa Barbara. Newport Beach, Laguna beach in Orange County. Don't skimp on Los Angeles..lol...plenty to see here as well.

    Congrats and drive safe.. Cheers..!!!

    Oh yeah Monterey is awesome. Definitely make a stop there. LA County has some nice beaches as does San Diego. Also, I'm a huge bay area sports fan and if you check out the Niners, you have to check out a Giants game too. One of the most beautiful parks in the country. Always fun.

    Devil's Tower in eastern Wyoming is a nice hike and view. Also stop by the Grand Tetons for some really good photos of the mountains in the background of your Hellcat.

    Wow, looks like a great plan. How about driving till you feel like stopping, with a goal to make the two games. I would suggest more than one day in Vegas, be sure to drive out the the Dam. Have a wonderful trip and please spend lots of money, we need it! Trillions in debt and counting.

    Might as well take the cat to the grand Canyon or death valley were you would be able to see a cop from a mile away ;)

    Definitely need at least a couple of days at Vegas. Vegas to Yellowstone and San Fran-LA would be a long haul, suggest a break in journey. Although I'm quite sure you would have factored that in. Safe travels and I really wish I could also do something similar in the future. Cheers..!!!

    ya that's why I have 2 extra days that are unplanned probably spend one of those in vegas as long as I don't run into any problems before that.. and for long time driving I think it is split up pretty good considering when I go on sledding trips in the winter normally do 12 hour drive in my 1 ton (lumber wagon) to get where I am going I think the longest drives I have are all the ones in Canada still big ass country with not many citys.. where I live is 4.5 hours to the closest city

    No better way to go than in the most powerful production car made. Drive slow and enjoy the scenery
