Alright, so I've driven up and down the West coast, and never seen the East. I'd like to take a drive to Boston and see a friend, and I'm planning to go alone. I'll likely be going in January because I have some time off work.
My basic question is... is this a terrible idea? I drive a recently serviced 99 Civic so I'm sure I'll need some snow chains at some point, and there's a chance I may be sleeping in it along the way if that's possible.
Any thoughts or advice on routes or precautions would be really, really appreciated. I'd like to see the South, but I'd also like to see Chicago... really, I'm not too sure what the best sites to see are, so any advice would be great. I'm not sure if a SoCA. car needs special outfitting to even start in 0 degree climates.
