If i only knew

The first three weeks of Sep. 2013, i will be leaving KY.for the grand canyon on Rt.40. This will be my first trip west. I think i have almost everything i might need? For those who have made a long trip, what do i need to know, that you wish you knew?

I would post this inquiry on the road trips forum since you will be travelling a long distance through many states.

Have a good set of maps....I love Microsoft Streets& Trip Software in planning stage..

Interstate 40 i assume.....Planning is the secret of good or bad success....of your trip...

Agree that pre planning makes a big difference! If I had a dollar for every negative review written on Tripadvsor from someone who didn't research ahead of time;-)!

Plan your route, then start researching the stops you want to make. Check reviews and websites. No point stopping someplace that won't interest you, and you don't want to miss something that will interest you.

And, like slrtravelplanner stated above, post on road trips forum to get advice:-).
