This drive from Central California to La Paz, Mexico has been in the back of my mind for more than 30 years. I'm planning to do this in September of 2009 for two weeks. I would like to average 250-350 miles per day and arrive at overnight stays early. No camping, but local hotels are my preference. I'm looking for a lot of information on where to stop, where to stay, so please post messages.
