So, I've decided to pack my stuff up and leave the place I've called home for 23 years and move to a place I've never even visited -- Portland, Oregon.
My lease here in VA is up June 24th, so I'm leaving before then, just not exactly sure when.
I've driven cross-country once before, from VA to LA but it was literally the worst experience of my life -- probably the people I was with, and the fact we didn't stop to see ANYTHING, we made it there in 4 days, and that was with minimal driving each day.
Long story (kinda) short, I need as much advice as I can get. I was hoping my friend would drive with me, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen, so it may just be me, myself and I, which I'm okay with. I guess what I'm looking for is advice on how to plan the trip, how much I can expect myself to drive each day... should I pre-book hotels before hand? I work for Marriott, so I get really good discounts, I just don't know if I should drive till I can't drive anymore or plan to stop at a certain point.
I'm rambling, but any advice, comments etc, would be helpful. And anyone in the area who is up for going with me, let me know!!
