    so i just found out i'll most likely be going out to LA for a "business trip" late this or early next month (could be leaving as early as this saturday). I know i'm going to hit parks while out on the trip but not sure which ones i should hit. Now a major note is that due to the nature of the trip i have to drive from Roanoke VA to LA and back to Roanoke. I know of some parks i can hit up depending on what rute i take

    if i take 64-70 i can get Holiday world, SF STL, Worlds Of Fun, Elich Gardins, Vegas coasters SFMM Santa Monica pier coaster and knotts. No matter what i do i am not doing Universial LA

    if i take 81-40 out i would only get 2 or 3 intermediate parks with the LA properties still happening but one would be cliffs in New Mexico and the parks are generaly smaller and family owned with 1-3 coasters per park. note i am not doing dollywood seeing as i've been there b4 and is "too close to home for this type of trip"

    now i plan on taking a different route out and back and was wondering if there were any parks that I did not already mention that I could hit within 20 miles of the highway's i'll be taking and if there are any parks i've missed. i would be willing to take the 20 on the eastbound trip only.

    also i am wondering what my credit count could end up bing for this trip

    RCDB.com is your friend, It shows parks/coasters by park and has a nearby parks feature. We use it all the time and it is how we ended up at Wild Adventures last week when we finished SFOG earlier than expected.
