I am planning a road trip to San Francisco from Ohio (Mostly I-80, and up to Yellowstone and back down).
I will have a ton of questions over the next few months, but here are the ones I am pondering now.
I have a 1995 Mazda MX-3 with 130,000 miles on it. She is in reasonable shape and still pulls about 28 mpg. Can this car make it to San Francisco, and how much added wear and tear does constant driving for several weeks add compared to the daily grind?
I want to go through Utah and Nevada in late August. How does the heat effect the car and the driving, how bearable is it for people and cars?
I am from a fairly gritty city in Ohio, Driving through the country at night makes me uneasy, how dangerous is it to drive from Des Moines to Yellow Stone at night?
and lastly, is a Sat phone overkill?
