Trip Report Driving cross (southern) country without A/C report

Jump to last reply

Tomorrow we will be flying from Tampa to Phoenix on AA. Check in at the Arizona Biltmore Resort for 2 nights.

Sunday we meet up with the owner of my new toy, beautifully restored 1974 Triumph TR6, http://www.classic-british-cars.com/triumph-tr6-cars.html This will be the first time I actually get to touch my new toy I bought about a month ago.

Early Monday morning we start our drive eastward. On this thread we got some great suggestions as to where to stop, what to see, etc.... http://www.fodors.com/community/united-states/driving-from-arizona-to-florida-need-suggestions-on-what-to-see.cfm. I-10 it is. AZ, NM, TX, LA, MS, AL, and home sweet home FL. We don't have any other reservations and no solid plans as where to stop with the exception of (never been)San Antonio and (gambling)Biloxi.

The one little problem is that the car has no A/C. It is a convertible so that will help. We plan on driving for no more than few early morning hours every couple of days.

Will make a trip report as we do the cross country drive.

I feel like a little kid in a candy store. My dream to own and drive the classic British car is finally coming true. And to really top the whole deal, a cross country drive... now, if the I-10 was US Route 66.... :-D that would be the ultimate......
