Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum, but I created a profile because I'm considering (as in I don't think I have any other options) driving from the Austin area in TX to southern New York State. By myself. I'm 21 and will only have been driving for a few months, flying isn't an option, I need to get a car up to NY, and there's no one that can drive with me. It's over 1,500 miles and it's 25 hours driving time. I guess I'm just asking for some tips on being a young woman, inexperienced driver, and having this not be a recreational trip. I've down longer drives with my family where I'm not driving, and I've done them frequently so I know that I CAN do this, I was just hoping people had tips for doing it alone. The trip would be either end of July or beginning of August, depending on how I'm doing at driving by the end of the summer and if I feel I'll need to stop very frequently etc.
