I'm planning to move to Philly, and I'm seriously thinking about bringing my car with me, which is a 2001 Civic. It's still in decent condition, and I figure it can handle a 2700 mile road trip. Also, I'll probably be driving by myself.
Can I get your thoughts on the following itinerary? I'm planning a straight shot from LA to Philly.
Day 1: LA to somewhere between Gallup, New Mexico and Albuquerque, NM -- taking the I-40. About 646-800 miles.
Day 2: New Mexico to somewhere between Amarillo, Texas and Oklahoma City, OK -- continuing with the I-40. About 500-700 miles.
Day 3: Texas/OK to St Louis, MO -- taking the I-44. About 500-700 miles.
Day 4: St Louis, MO to Columbus, OH - taking the I-70. About 500 miles.
Day 5: Columbus, OH to Philly -- taking the I-70/76. About 500 miles.
I dislike driving for long distances, but unfortunately, I really need my car, and I have the time to drive out there. So, I figure it's saving more money than shipping my car, which can take up to 2 weeks and $2000.
I'm really impressed by how much all of you know, and I'd appreciate any input on this trip.
