I didn't read the whole thread but what day are you leaving out? One good way to stay awake is convoy with other FJs. CB radio talk is always entertaining
Be careful Bud!! It's amazing what a 30 minute power nap will do for you.I'm leaving out sometime Sat morning. Hopefully early, but I'd rather be rested to start.
I checked with one group, but I think they were going too aggressive in their drive stretches.
I'm the only one in my area, and my copilot had to bail (not by choice) :mecry:
So, I'm used to driving alone, traveling for work, so it's all good :cheers:
I'll be on the CB and see if I happen to run into any groups :lol:
I strongly second this. Since you are on interstate travel, and the state you are travelling to allows guns, you are legally allowed to transport an unloaded firearm through all of the states along the way (even if they don't allow guns). But if you plan on having a loaded gun, you better check each state you are passing through's reciprocity with your state. Also, some states actually have absurd laws that require you to tell a cop that you have a gun in the car if you are pulled over and you can get in a lot of legal trouble if you don't. Stay safe out there. Seen too many news stories lately of good people going to jail for a long time simply because they were ignorant of the states laws they were travelling through.If you don't have a "Concealed Carry" permit that is true, but if you do it is not!
Check here for reciprocity states if you have a permit...

BTW - If your on an Interstate, rest areas are good places to spend the night.
