just wondering what the profile of this route looks like as the sierra nevada seems a some what daunting prospect, any help on a map of its profile would be great, distance is around 2,800miles i believe

We have dont the Montreal to San Fra and down to san diego and back to Montreal its a great trip well worth doing to cross the US, you can do it in 4 day non stop on the Greyhound Bus we took 2 week across and two weeks back stopping in Chicago Salt Lake Iowa, Idaho Vegas etc we would travel for one full day then stop for two - have a great time

Remember you asking about the cycling last week, I know you thought he was a jerk but the round the world guy we spoke about would have done all this homework for you. Could you not check out his route?

You want a 3,000 mile profile map? Good luck with that!

Google maps any good?

hmm i mean you can plot a route well enough but is there anyway to see a profile of the terrain? cause from the looks of things setting off in LA provides sum interesting terrain

PM you your e-mail address and I'll send you one.

Easy to rustle up in Google Earth Pro.

thanks very much bobbajob, if i could be so cheeky as to ask you for both routes one through las vegas and the other through new mexico, as id want to know which would be best

thoguht it was possible in google earth but the options were not on my obviously limited version

Use a motorbike, terrain won't matter!!

E-mail on the way.

cracking stuff bobba job thanks very much, so people know new mexico way was about a max height of 2,400 metres, but las vegas way was about 1km higher to climb... either way it looks pretty grim

No problem.

Glad works copy of Google Earth pro has been useful.
