I drove this in my school bus as a training day and thought I would pass it on here to TUG. You can use these driving directions along with a map to plan an itenterary and make it a little easier getting from one point to another. I would not advise trying to do this all in one day.

I'd like to point out that in the city, many of the stop lights are across the intersection, on a short post on the right hand side. They can be easy to miss if you're not a local.
