Hi, this summer im thinking of driving out to my dads house outside of Los Angeles and getting a job out there for a while. I live right outside Washington DC and am a little floored by the prospect of driving across the country solo. Last October I drove from here Las Vegas with a friend but we split the driving and used his Tom-tom gps thing. Anyways I was looking for any tips that will make it a little easier on me. Im not trying to stay in a motel or anything more then once wheres a good place to stop and get a beer? For whenever else I get tired I was wondering if its safe to sleep in youre car at places like truckstops?
