I am in the early stages of planning my road trip and I have been reading the ways to save money on lodging, and one of the tips on this site was to sleep at a truck stop and then buy a shower ticket in the morning.
I am a nineteen-year-old female traveling alone, and so safety is definitely a concern...do you think I would be safe sleeping in my car at a truck stop? Or should I just plan on sticking to motels/camping?
Thanks in advance,
P.S. in case it matters...I am planning on going from Seattle, Washington to Salt Lake City, Utah to central Nebraska, to Effingham, Illinois, then to southern Minnesota and finally to Pierre, South Dakota and back home through Montana.
