Hello, I'm a college student planning a long drive to go and see an old friend who now currently resides near Wilmington, DE. I still live in Nashville TN, so the drive to see him is a little long. The only break we both have is winter break, and I was looking for any advice or thoughts on driving a 2008 Nissan Maxima through the mountains / cities. It's not so much a luxury trip, haha, as I'd prefer to get there within a day's drive. I've had family members tell me that the mountains will be rough to drive through, and as I planned on taking this trip through I-81 mostly in the middle of December, I was wondering how difficult it would be for my car. Any advice for planning the trip would be greatly appreciated.
