Hello Fellow Travelers,
We hate flying and so we decided to drive from Chicago to Las Vegas in May. We don't want to drive after dark, so we will take it relatively slowly - will leave on Saturday and plan on arriving in Vegas on Monday. This gives us two nights in hotels somewhere on the road.
It looks like we'll be taking the route through Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona. We've taken long road trips before, but never heading West and we are not familiar with that part of the country. Our main concern is safety, which areas to avoid, particularly when it's time to retire for the day.
The whole idea to drive was to avoid anxiety in connection with flying, but now I'm getting anxious anyway. How do we ensure that we arrive at our destination safely?
