Hi all. My name is Marisol and I am looking to get some feedback from you drivers out there!
After 3 years- I will be making my way back home to San Francisco from Columbus, Ohio and wanted some feedback on best routes to take. I am traveling the first week of December in my Honda Ridgeline. Heading to Chicago to pick up my uncle who is helping me drive, and leaving from Chi Town the following day (Saturday)
I am worried about a few things:
1) which route is the best during this winter season? My truck will be packed with a lot of my belongings so driving through snow is not ideal.
2) time- we are trying to make good time as My uncle has his flight back to Chicago 5 days after we take off. We were not planning on stoping for sight seeing or anything but it would be nice to make a stop in Vegas or somewhere else worth stopping for.
3) Rest/ Overnight stops- my brother made this same trip with a cousin last summer and they made it in 36 hrs. Pretty much close to no rest. Since this is my first road trip- I would like to book a hotel somewhere half way or even in Vegas if we are making the stop. Any recommendations?
I'm 25 years old so I'm a pretty experienced driver, but I've never taken this long of a road trip. Longest drive has been SF to LA lol
Really, any tips, tricks, feedback is greatly appreciated and will be taken seriously since as of now I have no idea what I'm doing.
Thanks in advance :)
