Hey Vegasmike6. Yeah I would have loved to have seen a show but the days seem to fly by when your having fun there. I would love to return to Vegas it's such a fun place! :)

CheersT. I know just a shock when things seemed fine but I guess in the end I did have a fun time and will have the trip memory for a life time :-D. The driving was hard work 9 hours most days :-/ haha

The biggest challenge brits have planning a trip to the US is comprehending how big the US is. The miles from London to Moscow are roughly the same as the miles from Miami to Houston. Spend time with you tube and gmaps and think about what you really want to see.

Hey Katzgar

I totally agree with you I thought we planned it out well but I did not realise how hard it would have been, originally it was me who was supposed to do all the driving but it turned out the car company would allow us to add another one on for $65. If this was the case I would not have been able to enjoy the drives. I will never look at the uk and think an hour drive is far at all from now on lol. The USA is an amazing place and I am planning to go back to see Mount Rushmore in the new year but I won't be driving as far as I did before hehe.

I just can not get over how amazing the gran canyon is and to have landed for a drink and picnic is something I will always remember :-)))

Are you from the USA ?

probably best to do multiple trips and do it in sections.

My cousin was from Minnesota and moved to San Antonio where we went to visit. I totally agree more than one trip should be done but I guess you don't know until it's done which is a bit too late lol. I loved the time in the USA but I do agree with you that do to do it all if more than what it's worth but it's a beautiful place. Just a shame I can not speak about the memories much since I got back as it's just awful to think we had so much fun there but it can ruin everything which I thought was fine.

Maybe it's a drunken message I'm sorry I am just finding it hard and if I knew to do split trips like you say things would have just been as perfect as they where before we left but instead im left being ignore when Christmas should be a happy time :( maybe I'm just to much of a nice guy and it gets me no where. :-///// xxxxxx

You might sit down with an old fashioned map and trace your route, that helps me recall things.

I live in cheshire but my cousin was from Liverpool and she moved to Minnesota when she was young with her parents :). I just really want to see the faces :-p but it's always fun to see places you never planned to :) Fort Lauderdale is a beautiful place I loved the place we stayed, it was a rushed job at finding a place but with the room on the lake it was good for a relaxing evening after going to the pubs :) I wanted to see the cruse port but they don't let you in :( lol xx
