This will be my first road trip that's longer than 1,000 miles so I guess I could be considered a road trip novice. I'll take all the advice I can get. I have the 5th through the 20th of October to do this i need the 21st to rest and recoup. Also I'll be the only one driving for my girlfriend, who I plan to propose to on this trip, doesn't have her license. In the trip plan I actually have an extra day to allocate somewhere and was wondering where I should put that extra day. Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!!
