Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo TX, fun old Route 66 motels in Tucemcari, New Mexico, etc... If you go through Vegas, the Neon Sign Graveyard is a very cool non-gambling thing to see.
We're going the way of the "south" (from Phoenix to New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois.. mainly along I-40 and I-44) Ive already got this planned out, which I think is on the "brilliant" side:
From Phoenix, up to Grand Canyon, Over to Vegas, Over to San Fransisco, Down to LA, down to San Diego, over to Yuma (AZ)- and Mexico, then back along I-40 through New Mexico and Texas..
I just need more good stops along the way.
