As some of you may know I am moving from NH to California in August and I would really appreciate any advise for such a long trip. Myself and my wife and maybe my stepson (12 years old) will be driving a rented truck from Budget 16 footer
and a trailer to put my 89 Astro on. So if any of you have made long trips like this one please feel free to give us any advice you feel could/would help. Thank you all, Mark

1.Have a supply of cash.
2.Be sure everything is insured properly.
3.Check all the vehicles not once but twice, everything.
4.Be aware you are driving a truck with a trailer behind it, it is long & tall
5.Credit Cards.
7.Maps & if you can, purchase a AAA travel protection plan
8.Map out your trip
9.If you have a firearm be sure you are legal.
10. See #4
11.Get plenty of rest before you embark
12.Don't push too hard, rest often, don't drive tired
13.Remember when you stop to rest, eat or for the night, you have a long vehicle to park and turn around.
14. Secure your valuables when you stop for the night, there is a lot of trickery out there.
