Solo Road Trip Across the Country
What does it mean to meet the depths of yourself? For many people, it is a challenging and personal journey. It is an internal discovery that can take months or years of self-work and introspection. Sometimes, we find out that we are not who we thought we were – and this realization can be both terrifying and liberating. Life coach Susan Cianciolo at Nettotrailer.no believes in meeting the depths of oneself through deep conversations with oneself by going on solo road trips across the country!
The first thing you need to know is how to keep your trailer functional on a solo road trip across the country. It may seem hard, but it’s easier than you think – especially when you want this for yourself and are willing to do what it takes.
There are two simple things that will help:
– Use an app like iExit or GasBuddy so that you can quickly find gas stations with great prices in real time
– Find out which level of platforms your car needs and use one of these apps so they don’t charge more than expected
Another thing you’ll want to consider is how many miles your car can go on a full tank. The best way to do this, according to Susan Cianciolo, author of “Go Solo Across America,” is by using an app that tells you your average mileage per gallon.
– You need 15 gallons of gas for the distance between Nashville and Asheville (about 400 miles)
– Your car gets 20 miles/gallon of gasoline, so it will take about six trips around the tank before you run out. This means you would only have to stop twice during this leg! However…if you don’t know how far your trip goes in advance then plan accordingly because stopping every 100 or 200 miles doesn’t sound too fun.
Another important thing to consider is where you are going. Not just in the literal sense, but what kinds of places will be along your route? Will they have electricity or running water? If not then this may be more difficult than if they do. The last thing you want to happen is for something catastrophic like no power whatsoever, so finding out ahead of time if that’s an issue at all locations would help reduce stress and make it easier on yourself when meeting the depths of oneself. Does your car need gasoline every 100 miles or 200 miles? How many gallons does it take until there isn’t enough gas left to keep driving between destinations (i.e., how long can you go without having to stop again)?
