    * Provide your own lock for the truck, but make sure it's a good one.

    * Allow U-Haul to...

    Hi! Sounds like a fun trip. Utah and Colorado are gorgeous. You'll find that national parks are not very dog-friendly, though, mostly because of the wildlife.

    Welcome!

    Another way to make this drive safe, other than driving daytime only, is to allow enough time to make the drive. At just around 1500 miles (Des Moines to Mesa through OKC), this means...

    Mark has some good suggestions, but I-210 to I-10 in the LA Metro area may not be great if cities bug you. Even 210 can get bogged down unless you drive it at 2 am -- and I wouldn't suggest that at...
