Newbie here. Just wanted to know if anyone has driven from Los Angeles to Atlanta. I am very excited about this road-trip, partly because I will be driving my car, which I have just got from Australia (I will be in the USA for 8 months, and plan to drive my car here, it has Australian number plates and is right hand drive - which I am hoping won't be too much of an issue. I will be shipping the car back to Australia in March-April next year). I have set aside 5 days to complete the journey from LA to Atlanta. Is that sufficient or do I need a few more days? (I will be travelling with my girlfriend and another couple, so we will have 4 drivers).
I have never driven this route before, although I have driven from Atlanta to New York (and back), and Atlanta to Missoula (MT), Bismarck (ND) and back to Atlanta, so I am familiar with the US road system, rest stops, toll roads etc.
Anyway..I would really like to know more about where to stop, how many motels/hotels I need to book and the availability of diesel fuel at gas stations along the way (as the car is a ML Class diesel SUV).
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys!
