I did it east to west. Points in the favor of this direction include the following:
- Get past the east while the temperature and humidity are reasonable
- When you hit Kansas, you'll want to leave early in the morning to beat the heat and winds. Going west means the following cars' drivers don't lose you in the glare of the early morning sun.
- You get to follow the early settler's path - most of the U.S. was settled east to west
- You get more time to get acclimated to the Rockies' altitudes
- Do the Appalachians and Ozarks look little after you've been through the Rockies?
Excellent report, Lucas.... Can you say more about the TransAm vs Northern Tier? Overall impressions, traffic, scenery, costs...?
