I am planning on driving from Austin, TX to Fremont, CA. I have never been on a road trip this long. I will be the only person in the car and as such am thinking of completing this trip over three days (start 5/27 and reach the destination 5/29). I have no plans for any sight seeing on this trip.
So, a couple of questions that I have are:
1. Based on the information from Google maps, it appears that the distance/time to complete the trip is the same irrespective of going on I-10W or I-40W. Which one is better, I-10 or I-40?
2. Any recommendations in terms of what would be the best place to stop overnight for two nights during the trip?
3. I have got my car inspected and it is ready for the road trip. Any other things that I need to take care of prior to starting the trip?
Thanks in advance for your comments.
