    Hey Guys 'n' Gals,
    I'm thinking about a vacation in the States, in the range between October and December. My personal intersts are country music and lifestyle, old cars, and of course off-road chevy trucks. I'm open to any ideas and suggestions. I'd like to do the most possible in the range of about 2/3 weeks. I'm also looking for cheap car rentals and lodging suggestions.
    Or even someone who wants hanging my around and host me. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
    Any input would be apriciated.

    Thanks

    Luca

    If you like the old west, come check out the Black Hill's of South Dakota. Lots of history here. We're also with in 100 miles of Devil's Tower in Wy. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif The Bad Lands are cool also. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Go to Branson, Missouri and/or Nashville, Tennessee. Both are great country music cities.

    Las Vegas! You want it? You can get it there. Only a few hours from the Grand Canyon unless you take a chopper ride. Tons of fun.

    In 2-3 weeks you could start at NYC and head south. In North Carolina you could see the mountains. Hop over the mountain and go to Tennesse (Nashville for country music Tellico for wheeling), cruise a bit further west and go to Branson Missouri. Head south and see Mickey at Disney World in Fla, Go to the oldest city in America (supposedly) also in Fla, where Ponce De Leon landed, St Augustine, Fla. Miami and the Keys also. Grab a plane and head to Vegas, Moab, and Colorado. One more plane and you can see Hollywood and LA.

    Sounds like a bunch but I think it could be done. If your willing to foot the bill Ill try it for you and make sure its a doable plan before you waste your time trying. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    go ahead come to vegas, fry your brains out in the 120 deg heat, deal with idiot drivers, road work, and be bored out of your mind if you don't wanna go broke gambling (and you will). but hey you'll be feeding my town's economy /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    Thanks for your help.
    I made my choice: I would have a lobster served by Mickey while a drag queen sings country travelling from Vegas to Alaska freezing my a$$ on Santa's 4x4. /forums/images/icons/blush.gif
    That's what I mean do the most possible things in the range of time.
    Thanks again, fortunatly I still have some time to plan this.
