I'm completely new to these boards but it's such a great place to share experiences. Thank goodness, because I could definitely use some good advice!! I will be trekking from Baltimore, MD to Portland OR on the 24th of August, and I'm just curious as to any advice anyone has...ie weird places to stay away from, how the heck to keep yourself focused and busy in the car, good places to stop and take a few pics, etc.
I'm probably doing this by myself but possibly with a friend. I have to be in Portland by the 30th....is 6 days enough time? The longest I've ever driven is 13 hours at a time, so I'm a little worried about the length of the drive, especially if I'm going at it alone! Plus I tend to get a bit distracted, so I want to make sure I don't jump off the highway to see the world's biggest ball of yarn or something crazy like that!
I hear I-70 or I-80 are the best bets, anyone have any preferences, and why one is better than the other??
Any help would be incredibly appreciated!!
