First issue the whole roomy and sturdy car issue, not an issue. Rent a van, rent an SUV, rent an RV, if you're brave enough, the point is there are options out there if your car wouldn't handle a long trip. Second issue the whole mercurial gas prices, well it all depends on where you live and where you are heading. Because living in L.A. our prices are upped just because of the economic supply and demand issue, however when we travel out of the state, BAM! prices drop rather drastically. So I can't promise the gas will be cheap or stay cheap wherever you go, but I can say you'll just have account for the price as an added expense for the trip. Third issue time availability, road trips take time and should take time. Meaning you shouldn't rush to all your places, by all means make sure you plan a schedule, but feel free to change it up if need be, take detours or an extra hour here or there. You'll most likely never make it back to those places you're driving to and should take your time at each place enjoying it and of course documenting the whole experience.
