Hello Friends, I am planning a west coast road trip during December/January. I live on the east coast and have never been to the West Coast. I am thinking of flying to a west coast city and then renting a car and driving. The states I have in mind are New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada and maybe Washington (Seattle). Has anyone done this? What's a good starting point - Phoeneix, LA, Alberque, etc. ??? What cities/states should I visit? What sights should I take in? Any tips? Any trader in that neighborhood willing to meet me for drinks/lunch/dinner during my 'tour"? All ideas/suggestions welcome. Many Thanks!!
