Coast to coast

Curious, what is the quickest trip anyone has made coast to coast towing an AS? Also anyone done the 4 corners of the country in one trip? Washington, Maine, Fl, and Calif. in an AS ? Something different to think about. Jim

are you prepping for the Cannonball Run Airstream Caravan?

actually, unless there is a real 'need for speed' the idea of
quickest + Airstream is not a great combination.

relax - enjoy the trip.

We have done the coast to coast thing several times, usually taking two weeks or more to do it. We have also done three corners (Florida/California/Washington) on more than one occasion. We have yet to do Maine in the same trip.

Not coast to coast, but we did the trip from our home near Toronto to San Diego
in 3 1/2 days a few years ago.

What made it feasible was stopping at FJ truck stops each night - really quick in and out !

I've finally realized I am retired and have no need to rush any more now though, so I don't have much interest in trying to repeat that! I like to start out each day of travel early, but call it quits mid to late afternoon and relax!

Also being retired, we don't try to break any land speed records as we meander cross country. We do try to be "wheels up" by the crack of Noon. Sometimes our travel day does not break the one hundred mile mark if there are some interesting sights along the way.

On one occasion several years ago, we were traveling eastbound on I-90 in Montana. We had just crossed into Wyoming and stopped for the night at a little campground in Ranchester. We got talking to another camper and decided to take in the nearby Bighorn National Forest. We ended up staying for almost two weeks.

Interesting, I took 5 days from Fl to Calif. I was just trying to get a dif topic started. There has to be someone that got on I10 in Jax and went to Cailf in a few days. You know, The Cannonball Baker Sea to Shining Sea Memorial TrophyDash, for AS. Bonus points for know flats! Jim
