I am planning to drive solo from Seattle to New Orleans and back leaving the second week in April. I hope this is late enough to avoid most ice and snow. I am an older female who is not an experienced traveler but feel I can do 600 miles a day without problems.
It is not really a sightseeing expedition and I would like to reach NOLA in 5 days or less, then possibly take a more leisurely trip back with possible scenic stops along the way, maybe along a more southerly route. I was not going to make motel reservations but just find something wherever I spend the nights.
I think it would be best to stay on the interstates and would like to never get too far from populated areas, but know that won't be possible. I plan to go into my local AAA office for help planning, maps etc. but wanted to get advice here on a route(s), first. I do not have a GPS.
Thank you so much for any help.
