How To Survive Long-Distance Road Tripping – Introduction

It’s no secret to my friends and family that I love to travel and drive absolutely EVERYWHERE. I’ve booked more than 500,000 miles in the 10 years I’ve been driving (that’s an average of 50,000 miles/year!).

200,000 miles of that were with my 2012 Mazda3 iTouring SkyActiv hatchback.

If you’re anything like me, you’d prefer to drive to your destination rather than flying. You see more, experience more, no annoying crying babies or stinky feet besides your elbows. Your car is your zen, your personal hi-def DJ and your reflection space.

In my most recent trek, I made a solo road trip from Minnesota to California to visit some friends and family. It was a 1-week paid-time-off vacation that started with my weekend off. In total I was able to escape away for 9 days. That meant planning and budgeting the actual road trip itself.

I’m no stranger to long-distance solo road tripping. Having driven to/from: California, Georgia, Michigan, Louisiana various different times, I can say with confidence that I will be able to guide you in your journey.

I want to share with you my do’s and don’ts, top tips and recommendations on long-distance road tripping! Below, you will find links as they’re posted on various different topics:
