About to make the drive to San Antonio Texas from Upstate New York, doorstep to doorstep it's approx 2,012 miles. Now 140-250 mile road trips I am no stranger to, no problem driving to NYC, then Boston, then home, then Canada, etc. This will be the longest drive I have ever driven. I have done Florida and back (wasn't the driver at the time).
Looking for tips and good ideas that you folks have picked up over the years. Especially those things that once you got started on your road trip, you went - "damn, I wish I brought/did/thought of, etc .....".
I-87 South to
I-88 West to
I-81 South to
I-40 West to
I-30 West to
I-35 South to
US-90 West to San Antonio
New york to Pennsylvania to Maryland to Virginia to Tennessee (right through Nashville and Memphis) to Arkansas (right through little rock) to Texas (right through Dallas, hang a south to San Antonio).
Total estimated time of travel, 31 hours.
I am leaving the 8th of June, and I plan to be there on the 10th - I would like to arrive early on the 10th to start to explore a little. I would like to kill the first thousand miles in the first day, and do it in at least 15 hours or so. If I start at 8 in the morning that should hopefully put me a thousand miles away by 11 that evening. I plan on snoozing in my truck, I have a double cab so any suggestions would be appreciated, haven't slept in this truck yet. Does anyone know of any good portable coffee thermoses that plug into the truck to keep it warm??
Oh yea ROAD TRIP BABY!!!! Heading to texas to start school for Flight Engineering, 2 months in texas, than 6 months in Little Rock, AR.
