Gas prices may be rising, but that hasn't dampened Americans' dreams to hit the open road. About 25% of men and 33% of women say they have not driven across the country but “always wanted to,” according to a survey released last week by the travel website Expedia.com. And 41% of Americans and nearly half of men who were surveyed said they've already driven cross country at least once in their lives. The survey of 2,262 adults by Harris Interactive on behalf of Expedia went beyond Americans' automotive bucket lists.

--Madewell, the younger, more relaxed division of retailer J. Crew Group Inc., is going mobile this spring. Think less smartphone and more road trip. The brand, formally a work wear manufacturer in Massachusetts before getting rescued by J. Crew, is taking its denim line on a cross-country summer journey with a retro Airstream trailer. Retailers have been trying to shake up brick-and-mortar stores with more creative spaces such as pop-up shops, specialty stores and now stores on the go. Madewell's Airstream is rolling into Santa Monica Place this Saturday, loaded with stylists, discounts on jeans and a hair-braiding station.

With little more than a suitcase full of clothes, a cellphone and a laptop, I'm embarking on a cross-country road trip Monday from New York to Los Angeles. As an amateur rock musician and enthusiastic consumer of such, music will be my guide. No, scratch that. How about you be my guide? Beyond a rough outline of cities to stop in, I'm relying on you to tell me which sights to see. Send e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org or, for those on Twitter, www.twitter.com, send to @mmilian.

An Arizona road trip? Why not? Last winter, a college friend and I visited the Grand Canyon, one of the country's most celebrated treasures. In late April, we decided to return to check out Arizona's northeastern corner, which seemed speckled with less-visited wonders and, I hoped, a few hidden gems. I didn't have grand expectations for our itinerary. After all, what could be as breathtaking as the 6-million-year-old chasm, especially as I had seen it, dusted by snow and illuminated by the last rays of daylight?
