Road Trip Planner

9557269474_c31303b747_n.jpg

This is the place where you'll plan out your road trips, either when the game releases or beforehand, and share them with each other. I am excited to explore the vast map of San Andreas and what better way to explore it than with a road trip? smile.gifI may make updates to this topic when the game releases to show off some of the best road trips some of you and I have done via photos and detailed explanations. Maybe maps could be useful to show off your routes. biggrin.gifFor now I'd like to know what some of your road trip plans are, if you're interested.
Here is mine:
------------------
I'll begin my trip around 6:00am (in game time) in front of one of those beautiful Vespucci Canal houses. The car I'll be using is this classic Alfa Romeo 33 lookalike:

9554478033_a49f6759a7.jpg

I'll head out towards the Great Ocean Highway -- the parody of the Santa Monica Pacific Highway that starts from I-10 -- and cruise up to Chumash. There I'll pretend to fill up for this long trip :pp and I'll head into the LTD Service Station -- the place that got robbed -- and buy something. From there I'll head back onto the road and before I reach Chumash's city limits I'll head onto what looks like a beautiful winding road through the hills and I'll find myself in northern Los Santos. I'll head north up Route 11 from the and judging by some
recent screens I'll end up near the gorgeous Zancudo River and an intersection -- glance below the chopper --
. I'll turn right -- heading east -- and cruise down the road while gawking at some of the beautiful vineyards and swamps on both sides of the river. I'll probably glance back and look at the military base too. smile.gif

Further down the road I'll find myself in the hot Senora Desert. I plan to head up north to take a rest stop at
a dusty old 24/7 store in Sandy Shores. From there I'll take the iconic route -- Route 68-- heading east and out of Sandy Shores. Route 68 will head through the sizzling desert giving me wonderful views of Mt. Chilliad and the Alamo Sea. I'll head up to Grapeseed and take a nice slow stroll through the lush farms and try and find any Easter eggs. Hopefully there will be a freeway close by as I reach the eastern end of the map and I'll take that freeway to the northern shore town of Paleto Bay. Before I reach Paleto Bay -- my final destination :D -- I'll stop at that old Up-n-Atom eatery along the way. When I finally approach Paleto Bay I'll park my car on the beach and just stare at the beautiful ocean. Sounds like a great ending to a hopefully scenic road trip.

Here is what a small part of the route will look like with the help of the blueprint.

Your road trips plans don't need to be nearly as detailed as mine. sigh.gifJust tell me what car you plan to use, where you want to go, and what you want to do. When the game comes out I'll bump this thread and you all can start sharing your road trips. smile.gifCheers!

Awesome thread, Stingray.

We should go on multiplayer, and test out the new supercars and bikes for the first time. Starting off with a cruise around Los Santos and the hills, turning onto Route 68 for some drag racing and then some time trials on country roads to test out the handling.

Since the cars are new along with the map, it would be nice to do that.

*their*

But seriously, too much time on their hands? This game is about all the possibilities we have. Someone can do whatever the hell they want, so shut up.

I'm going to do some road trips myself, just to explore and drive on the open road. Definitely going to be doing it in a Ruiner of course. wink.gif

I'm gonna get an old pick-up, reminiscent of a 90's F-150, and start at the northwest corner of the map, take random roads and work my way to the southeast corner, head all the way up the east coast, make my way to the southwest corner of the map, then up the west coast back to where I started. I'm pretty sure that will cover most everything from desert to city to beaches. Then I'm going to grab a mountain bike and bike up every mountain, ending with Chiliad. Considering the size of the map, I think this may take me all day.

And I love the idea of tuning cars and bikes and drag racing down 68.

Sounds like the plot of a 90's horror movie.

I'll take a road trip around the map visiting landmarks. Here's what my plan will most likely be like so far:

-Arrival at LSX
-Go to Vespucci Canals
-Del Perro Pier
-Vinewood Sign
-Griffith Observatory
-Route 68 Towns
-Drive up Mt Chiliad
-Pacific Bluffs

I'm sure it will be much more in depth once I actually get the game.

I'll take this trip once I mod my first car.

I'll drive either some high end Drop top convertible or a spruced up Dodge Charger and drive along the freeway listening to 80's music as the sun beams on my face biggrin.gif

Honestly, I just go wherever the road takes me lol. I just keep driving down the most interesting roads as I go along.

First thing I want to do though is go into the wilderness areas as Franklin and see how I can interact with the animals. If any try to attack me I want to see if Chop will try to help me out biggrin.gif

Gonna take a Huntley (or one of the new SUV's), pop on the classic rock station, and take the freeway around the whole map. It'll give me a general feel for the whole place, but really I'll have seen hardly anything.

Great thread OP icon14.gif

Oh I'm definitely planning a nice road trip, might be one of the first things I pull off while playing the game. I want to turn off the minimap, and start somewhere on the northern parts of the map. Since I will pass many different landscapes and terrains on my way through, I could use a car that packs a punch, but is still suitable for some more extreme conditions... a Sultan maybe.

As I'm driving south, I will enjoy all the beautiful landscapes and roads, while heading towards the slowly exposing Downtown Los Santos skyline (you know, like how they used to navigate by stars in the deserts a long time ago) tounge2.gif

Love this idea. Everyone with different custom cars cruising the roads in a friendly way. icon14.gif

I'm going to drive my car off the top of Mount Chiliad and jump out while in the air. Crap, I forgot to pack a parachute. This road trip isn't going to have a very happy ending.
