  1. Default Solo from D.C. to Los Angeles

    Hi, this summer im thinking of driving out to my dads house outside of Los Angeles and getting a job out there for a while. I live right outside Washington DC and am a little floored by the prospect of driving across the country solo. Last October I drove from here Las Vegas with a friend but we split the driving and used his Tom-tom gps thing. Anyways I was looking for any tips that will make it a little easier on me. Im not trying to stay in a motel or anything more then once wheres a good place to stop and get a beer? For whenever else I get tired I was wondering if its safe to sleep in youre car at places like truckstops?

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    How many days do you plan on spending on the road? This is the kind of trip that we'd really recommend 5 days for, especially if you are traveling solo. Yes, you can usually sleep in your car at truck stops, and its one of the safer places you can sleep in a car. However, because of the length of this trip, and since you want to stop in towns along the way to get a beer at night, you might want to look into spending more than one night in a motel.
