Just one tip - master that wierd Mercedes cruise control so that you don't have to introduce yourself to Smokey.

Enjoy your trip! :)

I agree, I find myself having to lean forward and look down at the stupid lever to use it. About the only thing I don't like about my car!

I drive to Alaska from Texas every spring and return every fall. It is 4235 miles from door step to door step. The single most important thing that i have learned is to make sure that when entering a major city you take into consideration the hour. Try to avoid the rush hour. It is better to take a long lunch or get up early to avoid the rush hour.

For example, I live two and a half hours from Dallas, Tx. I plan the trip so I enter the city during a non rush hour time period. It saves time, fuel, and frustration.

Have been doing it for years. Going up I take six to seven days. After a long season of construction work I am anxious to get back to my family. With that in mind, I can get back with proper planning and hard driving in 96 hours.

Anyone who does a lot of driving for a living thinks about the hour when entering a large city. It kinda goes with the job.
