Hi all - I'm new here, just found this place, but it looks like it has some great information!
My younger sister just relocated to Ft. Worth, and I'd like to take a road trip from the Philly area to visit her. The folks going would be either just my hubby and I, or hubby, me, and my older sister, her hubby, and nephew (8) and niece (4). We'd probably only have a week to get down there, hang out and come back.
I've a few questions for you folks, if you don't mind helping me out...
1) What's a reasonable amount of time to drive each day (including pee breaks and meals, not including any side trips)? (Are there any sites that break up a road trip like that??) How many hours should a person drive before switching off?
2) Can you recommend any particular routes, or sites to help me with routes? Although the goal is to get to visit my younger sister, I don't want to miss out on the parts of the country I haven't seen just to get there quickly...
3) Should we rent a vehicle, or drive our own? (I'm also trying to decide if we should make it a camping/RV trip, too.)
4) Are there any other good sites out there for help? (I already have AAA bookmarked...)
Thanks in advance!!
