My husband and I are moving to NYC from Portland, Oregon. We are taking my car and driving our way across. Well, we both don't know much about road tripping and to be honest, I get scared of driving off to parts unknown. However! I am excited to try something new in life. Google shows me the basic map as do other map websites but I wondered, where do you know where to stay and when to stop driving for the night? What if there's no city for miles upon miles and you think you're lost in the dark with no cell reception!? *Ahem* So...I guess my question is, for two newbies to the road trip game, where is a reliable itinerary online I can use? Does anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone done this venture before? I am hoping the trip can be done within one week, with stays in hotels in cities spread across the USA. Also, my Prius is what's transporting us. It ain't no Subaru.
Any help, itinerary suggestions, advice and more is greatly appreciated. Thank you kindly :)
