So I'm going to take a 1500 mile trip from New England to Kansas. By Car. There and back. (3000 miles) I'm going (with my Mac of course) across Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and into Kansas. I have one place scheduled for sleep other than Kansas: Illinois. The primary roads I'll be riding are: Route 70 & Route 71 Firstly: What should I change, other than my oil, to prepare my car for this trip? Secondly: Has anyone took up a hotel off either of these routes? Was it worth the money for the service? How much did it cost? You guys rock.
