Hi everyone!
i have been reading through many posts on this forum but now i am hoping you can help me!
my itinerary is as follows at the minute:

Day 1 – Fly from UK in the morning for mid afternoon arrival in Chicago
Day 2 – full day in Chicago
Day 3 – Chicago to Springfield, IL
Day 4 – Springfield, IL to Cuba, MO
Day 5 – Cuba, MO to Tulsa
Day 6 – Tulsa, OK to Oklahoma City
Day 7 – Oklahoma City to Shamrock, TX
Day 8 – Shamrock, TX to Albuquerque, NM
Day 9 - Albuquerque
Day 10 – Albuquerque, NM to Holbrook, AZ
Day 11 – Holbrook, AZ to Grand Canyon
Day 12 – Grand Canyon to Kingman, AZ
Day 13 – Kingman, AZ to Santa Monica
Day 14 - Santa Monica
Day 15 - Fly Home

My question is..
is Cuba to Tulsa too far? ive heard some bad reviews about Tulsa and am considering splitting the journey up slightly
is Oklahoma City worth spending two days in instead of Albuquerque since we are both farmers and we mostly interested in visiting the national stockyard etc?

Hi Jessfal,

We did the route in Aug/Sept 2016 and took 20 days, we still missed some and couldnt get to the Grand Canyon, we motorcycled so it might be different in a car. I feel this would be pushing it if you did this on the interstate but if you want to drive the old roads you could find yourself doing a lot of actual driving.

Oklahoma City - we were humbled and blown away by the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum so that is worth visiting but I am not sure of any other major things to view there? Others may know more.
