Any tips for a girl driving car solo from Austin, TX to NYC with side trip planned for Philly and perhaps other places? I will be on a tight budget w/ most of my $$ going towards gas. I was told that I could get as far as Tennessee for a long haul first day (I obviously have not mapped out my trip yet). The next day would be straight to Philly.
safety! Is it a terrible idea to plan to camp at state park or KOA in tent on the way? Nap in car in a 24-hr. walmart parking lot safe?

I am considering leaving my car at a friend's outside Philly and taking the train into NYC. Does anyone else besides my parents think driving my car in NYC is a bad idea? Note: on my last big trip (Austin to Los Angeles) my car was stolen and totaled.
Any suggestions would be helpful, especially from other girls who've done this before
