I will be driving from Raleigh, North Carolina to Vancouver, British Columbia this August to attend grad school. This will be my first cross-country road trip, so I would dearly love your advice as I plan the drive. My dad and I will be making the trip together, and we're hoping to do it in about a week. At this point we don't have any "must see" destinations on the way. Our main goal as road trip novices is to make the trip in one piece (with all my worldly possessions packed into my sedan) with minimal stress.
