Subject: Re: Road trip across US

Books on tape can make any road trip more enjoyable. Sometimes my husband and I have sat in the car to finish a tape that we were really enjoying. In addition you can find radio stations with music that you enjoy by going to and typing in a city or state that you will be passing through.

Here is a tip I got from another web site: "All 50 states provide data from the FHWA, including up-to-the-minute traffic and road closure news, and links to outside popular local ground transportation websites. Most states even provide live traffic cameras. This info can help you plan your schedule, or find an alternate route to make you a happier traveler. Before getting in my car, I frequently check current traffic conditions. Sometimes I even check out random states just to see the weather.
