I will be driving from Peoria to San Francisco soon. I have done some trips from Peoria, IL to Columbus, OH before but have never been on such a long trip. I will be driving by myself with a car full of stuff. I have read some threads here, done some research and seems like I-80W would be my best bet. I do have some questions and would appreciate your suggestions/tips on this road trip.
1. How long is it recommended to drive in one day?
2. Are there any streches on I-80W without gas stations or services?
3. Should I make reservations in advance?
4. Is it recommended to take a AAA membership or something similar before I start my trip?
Any other suggestions or advice with the trip would be greatly appreciated.
