Driving via the road less travled is great fun but if you are relying on a mobile data connection to follow the google map route – you will discover cell coverage is sparse. So, prior to departing be old-fashioned and print out the route with the following maps:
New York to St. Louis (start of our 66 trip)
LA to Sonoma (convention location)
absolutely true… a paper map shows you so many possibilities. A GPS map only shows you where you are.
