    Default precausions

    Welcome to the RTA Forum

    Well, its hard to say what you need to look out for when we know so little about you and your plan, however a couple things to keep in mind.

    You're looking at a 1400 mile trip. You should plan to spend 2 nights on the road. Its a good 2.5-3 day drive, and trying to drive faster than that is one place you could run into problems.

    You should also have a mechanic take a look over your car. While a roadtrip isn't any more stressful on a car than daily driving (in fact its usually less stressful), but that should help find a problem that's could become apparent when you are miles from the nearest town.

    Most importantly, stop focusing on the negative! You can have a great time on your trip, but if you are only worrying about precausions and problems, you're going to miss out on the fun!
