My Fiance & I are moving back to Cali at the end of Mar 07. A buddy is flying to boston & joining us in our road trip. We are more concerned about safety than scenic routes, but we all love little towns & scenic america & of-course we have to stop at 1 or 2 bars. We are renting a 26 foot penske truck & my camry will be hanging in the back. We plan on putting our futon matress right behind the seats inside the truck & also a cooler & possibly a heater small tv. I will take my pocketpc with built-in GPS & tomtom software & we will add all flyingJ truckstops on the GPS. We plan to sleep inside the truck at safe truck stops. None of us have ever drove any big trucks.
We love scenic routes, but safety & under 6 or 7 days is important.
Do we need to avoid certain underpasses ?
what are must have items?
how many hours drive per day? I was thinking of taking turns 4 hours each
Benefits of regular gas or diesel?
