My husband and myself are planning to drive from New Jersey to Chicago, in fourth week of Feb 06, in 2 days.
We found the weather conditions and road map from the internet (mapquest and weather.com).
I still have some more queries for this forum.
Since this is our first long trip (about 820 miles), we would appreciate all expert's comments.
1) I found that the weather is becoming bad (it will snow in some places) in Ohio and Indiana during the weekends. I would like to know what precautions we should take, especially as first time travelers?
2) We are thinking to take a night stop somewhere in between (after about 400 miles) and complete the journey next day. Can you please suggest us any safe place/hotel?
3) How safe is this journey from NJ-Chicago, crossing 3/4 states? Has anybody have bad experience on this route? If anyone knows of any gas station/hotel that should be avoided, it would be great to know.
We have never driven so long in US before, and your opinion and tips will be very useful to us.
Thanks and Regards
