Driveway's Keith Morgan went for a spin with Nissan for the automaker's Altimate Rogue Trip

Driveway: Getting Your Kicks on America’s Historic Route 66

Editor Keith Morgan guns it from Chicago to Santa Monica – 4,000 kilometres in 7 days on Nissan's Altimate Rogue Trip.

In this week’s Driveway Canada, auto enthusiast and editor Keith Morgan looks back on his spin with Nissan on the ‘Altimate Rogue Trip’ – a 4,000-kilometre, seven-day drive from Chicago to Santa Monica along America’s historic Route 66.

“On the Nissan Altimate Rogue Trip we saw the spectacular in spades. And when the dozen journalist participants pulled up at the end of the road by the Santa Monica Pier, we shared a great sense of achievement. We all knew each other from new vehicle launches around the world, but this was different. This hardened, cynical bunch developed a greater camaraderie along the way and some even hugged as we gazed at the lapping waters of the Pacific.”
