Cross Country Jeep Caravan?

I know it sounds crazy but i planned a cross country motorcycle ride for next summer. But i sold both my motorcycles to buy the Jeep. I still may take the ride though. I wonder could i get a caravan of Jeeps to travel from VA to CA and back with all points in between?! What would be some" have to stop here" places??

IS there any further plans on this? I could advise on Oregon sites and meet up at, say, Crater Lake!!!

Use to go there all the time when I lived in Idaho Springs. Highest paved road in North America. I used to also go up Guinella Pass all the time and hit some of the ghost towns and old mines up there. Lots of crystals to be found yet up there. Mt Evans is only open about 3 months of the year so anyone planning a trip to there better call ahead. It also closes for bad weather sometimes

If you go I-40 to CA. stop at Grand Canyon "a must". Then take "old route 66" from I-40 to Peach Springs AZ. Longest stretch of curved road in the U.S. 9 miles of curved road. Takes you back to I-40 at Kingman AZ.

I used to live in Evergreen years ago and rode my bike up to Echo Lake and down to Idaho Springs and back home. I sure miss living there. There were places i could fill my water bottle with no worries. I am a 1982 graduate of Evergreen High School. We used to explore the area in and around Central City back in the early 80's. Fish in Empire,and watch the ice drags in Silverplume. We loved to Ski as well.
