I'm moving from TX to CA in June. My original plan was to ship my Ford F-150 so my wife and I could take turns driving her Mountaineer.
Well, shipping costs have gone up, and now we're wondering if the $1K it would cost to ship is worth not having to drive 2 vehicles.
We have overnight stops planned in Tucumcari, NM and Kingmill, AZ. We can't do much sightseeing on the way because we'll have two 75-lb dogs in the Mountaineer, and we're staying at KOA campgrounds (renting cabins).
I've been browsing the forums and I know a lot of you may see this trip as no challenge, but neither one of us is accustomed to driving long distances. We were counting on taking turns driving every 2-3 hours, but obviously can't do that if we decide not to ship the truck.
1) Is it worth driving 2 vehicles to save difference in shipping costs and to avoid having to deal with a shipping company? (I posted it as a poll just for fun, if it works)
2) If we do decide to drive them both, any tips on making the trip easier for us?
