Asking for some help, I'm not a total noob to long trips but this will be the longest distance I've traveled driving to date.
I will be moving from the state of Washington to Pennsylvania this month. I'm driving a 20 ft Uhaul with an Auto Transport trailer behind.
Ideally i'd like to stay on the interstate as much as possible and take the most direct route. If we could avoid any major traffic junctions or interchanges that would be great as I'd hate to be driving in a congested area with this truck and trailer. I'm not in a particular rush to get this trip done as my attitude is to make this as safe as possible instead of pushing extra long days and risking over doing it.. I will be the only driver but will have a passenger to keep me company. I think 5 days is reasonable time frame but if its longer then that's fine.
Any road trip advice and route suggestions would be very helpful.
Also i'm a bit afraid someone will steal my truck while i'm stopped and resting, anyone know how commonly this happens? Any theft prevention tips? From reading Reddit i'm under the impression that this is a real possibility however I am not sure if i'm just stressing myself out.
I'll be leaving this Friday.
