The Kangaroo is preparing to bound all the way over there. I figure 3 days to get there and the same to get back. +/- 1 day. Anybody give some advice on where to stop along the I 80 corridor?

I'm actually looking forward to this long drive. Always wanted to do a cross country thing.

Got that covered :thumbup.

Looking at doing this in HD format, including videos of the forum and all the activities, members, etc etc. I will gather incriminating evidence... :fact

Where are you headed to?
The Convention, going to do a big loop, I-80 to the Gap, then the I-15 back the week after. Don't know all the different highways in between. Something like this. :thumbup

having made many 3000+ trips, some even solo including straight through 1500 mile legs....i can offer a few tips. (besides all the very obvious stuff)

1. don't speed too much. you don't make time on the road on a trip that long--you make it on stops!! a couple long stops wipe out any sane amount of time you make speeding. fuel up and stretch out, but be quick about it.

2. eat extra healthy. hitting up dirty ron and colonel sanders will cost you. pack some healthy easy-to-eat food for your trip. you will feel 5x better upon arrival and save money too.

3. it is not possible to over-estimate the potential boredom. bring way more music/etc than you think you need. you'll be very glad by nebraska. i brought some books on tape also (cd...stephen king) for variety last time and that worked out nicely.

4. be careful. if you start to feel really tired/sleepy.....stop. it's actually very easy to fall asleep at the wheel. having consumed several hundred gallons of energy drinks, i can vouch that red bull is truly the best.

5. good luck. and see you at the convention!

That looks like a fun trip. You have to do me a favor if you dont mind. When you go by Lincoln Neb. on I80 you will pass Memorial Stadium. Where the Nebraska Corn Huskers play. How bout snap a pic. for me. Dont stop or anything just snap a pic from you car.

If Paytheon starts from Oregon, he may be further than me.
