I'm leaving on Tuesday with a 26' Penske (cheaper than U-Haul) truck, with a car carrier behind me. I guess it's somewhere around a total of 35-36' or so. I-5 and then I-10
I have driven the reverse route 3.5 years ago and it took me 5 days, with comfortable driving. Very boring though. I was scared going too far off the freeway, since reversing with that whole rig is pretty impossible for me.
Anyway, I'm open to maybe going off the freeway on certain spots and driving parallel smaller routes to get some local flavor, but again, I'm kind of scared with such a big truck.
Are there any suggestions that you have that might be some parallel routes to I-10 for a few hours at a time that doesn't create problems for me with the truck (low bridges, or truck too heavy etc).
Solo female driver (with dog), so safety is also a factor.
Thank you for any suggestions.
ps: On the way here I was informed at a gas station that someone had cut my fuel line and the
gas was coming straight out again. I understand that they did it to syphone off gas. Does that happen a lot and is there something I can do to avoid that?
