I'm new and need of some advise and I mean any advise and things to keep in mind about traveling across country. It just going to be me and my two dogs with some of my stuff. I might be moving to Los Angeles, CA from eastern NC in the next few weeks and I'm trying to plan the least elevation change route. I'm thinking I20W and I10W route is the least, but I can't seem to draw my own route in the advanced maps. If anyone has a better grasp of using the maps function here and can send me a link with the "show elevation" on that would be awesome!
To give a bit of background, I drive a 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer and it's a gas hog so trying to find the route with the least resistance in about 6 days. Also should I be worried about gas station spacing taking I10/I20W route? I'm planning on camping each night to save money, I'm going to bring all the fluids (AT, oil, and coolant) and an extra gas canteen, extra belts, and I'll have all my tools so if I have to do some simple repairs I should be OK. I'm also messaging my FSJ forums to find local mechanics along the route I pick so I can have a backup plan in case things go really crazy, but I just want to know the route first before I message them.
Thanks in advance!
