Cross Country Road Trip - need advice

Jump to last reply

My 19 year-old son and 3 friends are planning a cross country road trip to start in CT and end in SanDiego CA. I have many misgivings even though they are all pretty responsible kids & do not drink/smoke, etc. They plan to do the trip out in 3 days, stay for 5-7 days in CA, and take 3 days for the trip back. I have never made a cross country trip but this seems like not enough time out and back. The only attraction they plan on stopping to see is the Grand Canyon.
What advice would those of you who have made a cross country trip give them? What is essential to have in the car? How long (hours)and/or far should they expect to drive safely each day? (4 drivers). We'd appreciate any helpful advice.
