    My roadtripping minivan is also a Honda Odyssey. It does rather well in all-weather, but is certainly not AWD, but it does have horsepower. The Toyota Sienna has an AWD option (not sure if that is...

    Upstate NY is kind of undefined so for discussion purposes I assumed Rochester and chose Arches NP. A couple of my upfront biases: 1) avoid Chicago and 2) generally prefer I-80 over the I-70 section...

    I am not a big fan of the Denver to St. Louis stretch of I-70, so I almost always choose alternate routes such as I-80 (out of your way) or via US highways south of I-70, usually a route that takes...

    In addition to the coffee espresso bars, Target and and to a lesser degree, Walmart, are sometimes options. Walmart is usually open 24/hrs a day so can provide some flexibility. But, Starbucks is my...

    This was confusing for years with I-95 being the eastern beltway and I-495 beign the western beltway. Now it is all I-495. The road signs will likely steer you the eastern route, which isn't too bad,...

    It is a reasonable risk taking the I-95 southbound route because it is a national holiday with two more days for people to return home (on Sat and Sun). However, on your return trip you may want to...

    Friday, New Year's Day, shouldn't be too bad. There may be a lot of people on the highways during the weekend making holiday travel but the interstates in SC to FL shouldn't be too bad.
