Cross Country Drive advise Kansas to LA

Any suggested routes or must see pit stops driving from Kansas to Los Angeles? I'm planning at least 1 overnight stay. Taking the Turbo Lotus for some warm weather and nicer roads

If you are going through Denver, I am up for lunch or dinner.

Apexes are a lot like relationships. So tough to get right, so easy to see where they went wrong.

That would have been great!!... but the weather looks kinda iffy taking the northern route. I was thinking the more southern route might be safer...68 and sunny

If you're stopping in LA I'm sure some of the locals would like to check out your car and Phil's work, myself included!
