  1. Default First time driving alone from Florida to Washington State

    Hello I'm new here and I just wanted some advice. I will be driving alone for my first time ever from Florida to Seattle in the beginning of Feb. I've driven across country before but with another person with me. I was wondering if anyone can give me any tips for making my roadtrip. What road conditions can I expect. What the safest route would be. I'm giving myself about a week to get to Seattle. Do you thing that would be enough time to get there? I also plan on driving about 12 hours a day and stopping at a hotel or motel before it gets too dark. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!

    You may find that 12 hours per day, day after day, gets a bit much, especially when you are on your own. It is also important that you discipline yourself to a 10 min stop at least every two or three hours to stretch your body, get the blood and oxygen circulating again and generally refresh yourself to stay alert.

    Lifey who wishes you a good trip
