Okay, here's the deal. I've never taken a road trip per se, in fact my travelling altogether has been pretty limited. So I have no real idea what I'm doing aside from some overly romanticized ideas from books and movies and the like. What I do have is a honda civic, an iphone packed with music, and all the time in the world come September, as I'll be leaving my job at the end of August to move from Seattle, Washington to Austin, Texas.
So, I'm pretty open. I'll take general road trip advice, I'll take route advice, I'll take stop recommendations. I just want to experience as much as I can on the way, take this opportunity to see a little bit of the country, and not go broke in the process (figure I can save a few hundred toward the trip). I haven't even seen that much of Washington beyond the city, so I suppose that's a good place to start. Not that I want to spend a month driving, but I don't have to rush this trip too much. So...any thoughts?
