I am new to this forum, but already feel that I am at a great place! With lots of useful information and tips.
So I have planned a trip from Jersey City in New Jersey to Great Smoky Mountains (GSM) in TN. Its not actually a road trip, we have rented cabin at GSM and would be travelling there for out vacation over the memorial day long weekend.
This is what is I am so excited and cautious about!
We would be travelling from NJ on 24th May (Friday) around 8:30pm and according to google maps it is a 10.5 hour journey. So my personal calculation is that we should be in GSM by 9:00 am the next morning (Saturday 25th May).
What are the things that I should be taking care of during the drive?
A. We have rented a Ford Expedition EL (The Rental agency said it was a 2012 Model)
B. We are only 2 Drivers. The other guy is going to start off driving and would drive say till midnight trying to cover about 150-180 Miles and then it is going to be all me.
Need some advice guys! How I should approach the drive?
I am not as good as you guys or have not driven as much! But I love to drive and have driven long distances before. My Longest however has been to Niagara Falls from NJ which is like a 7 hour drive. I drove straight 7 hours with just one break.
Thank you! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
