We only have driven one way once, flew back home. This year, our dog is too old and weak, to leave with our son. So we are bringing him with us. When we drove down 5 years ago, I am sure we did not go the most logical way. My husband is a slave to the GPS, and we went whatever way it told us. I am amazed we actually ever arrived. We went down through Iowa, Missouri, and ended up staying in Jackson Tennessee. We did pass through Jackson, but then the GPS showed nothing for about 100 miles, so we turned around and stay there overnight.
So, my question is which way do you go, and where do you stop overnight? I am dreading doing this between a geriatric dog, and me, I pity my poor husband. Luckily we are extending our stay.
