This is my first road trip. I'm going from Chicago to Clearwater beach (tampa area) June 30th to July 9th. Please any suggestions to help me prepare for this would be a big help. I dont know what to expect. I dont know what to do to prepare my car or myself for this. Every map website says 19-22 hrs. Everyone I talk to is telling me this is the most idiotic idea I have had yet. Any suggestions would be so helpfull. ~ thank you!
