    This might sound like an odd question, but I'm looking for some advice.

    I'm going on a road trip in a couple of weeks.
    Toronto, Ontario, Canada to Summit Point, WV for a SVTOA event and I have decided to continue to Miami, FL afterwards to visit family.

    I've never been on a long road trip before - only ever driven between between Toronto & Montreal - about 340mi which takes less than 6hrs. Driven back and forth many times and once in the Cobra - but something tells me the 2days it will take me for this drive won't be the same.

    Any tips on what I should bring with?
    Be prepared for? I know some freeways have tolls?
    Any tips on what I should watch out for?
    Or any popular places I should stop at?

    I've used GoogleMaps and MapQuest to see the route - seems quite simple.
    Laptop will be with me with MS Streets & Trips + GPS Locator - just in case.
    Car will be checked out before leaving Toronto and most likely before leaving Miami if anything feels off.
    Cooler for drinks and snacks and a cheapy air compressor in the trunk, along with the helmet from the track - in case I run into any tough parts of towns.

    That was going to be my next post in a couple more days once everything is 100% finalized. :)

    Anything going on May 20, 21 or 22nd? That's when I'll be there.

    I've driven across the country multiple times, sounds like you have everything covered. Just have FUN.

    So I am here. The drive was really nice down the I-95.
    Didn't see many 'stangs on the road - except for the FHP Mach1 (or GT?).

    Already saw one Cobra today... earlier this evening an '03 or '04 passed by the other direction on Stirling Road in Hollywood.

    Yah that would be it. No markings on it at all - and dark tinted all around.
