Driving solo from Chicago to Boston next week to pick up my daughter from school. I flew out there last year and helped pack and store her stuff, but it ended up being more expensive. Got a decent sized SUV and with just two of us we'll be able to get everything crammed into the back. It's just shy of 1000 miles but has the shortest turn-by-turn Google Map directions I've ever seen. "Turn left on Harlem Ave, enter east bound ramp on I-290, merge on to I-90, continue to Boston. I'll drive through Cleveland, Erie, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany and Springfield, MA, Cleveland being the only one of those cities I've seen. Don't think I'll have time for actual site-seeing, but it should be an interesting trip. Never driven that far by myself. Got about 12 gigs of music on my iPhone, plus Sirius. Will probably pick up some new CDs and download some books on audio. Any serious road warriors on the forum with advice on how to keep my mind occupied? What do truckers do? (I know what they do at truck stops.) Any thing worth a 10 or 15 minute stop along the way? Don't say Rock and Roll HOF. You couldn't get me out of there in less than five or six hours. Actually more worried about the ride back. There are worse things than being alone for 15 hours.
