Enjoy the drive.

I'm heading out to North Carolina later this year for about half a year. I've decided to drive (Seattle to Durham). I'll have my Sonic for the trip out most likely, however I should have another car by the time I return. Either way, I really look forward to doing the drive and seeing the sights.

Thank you for all of the great input guys. As much as I would like to take my time to really sight see, my goal is first and foremost to get out there and start setting up the apartment and getting myself settled down. I'm going to make stops along the way but my hope is to not be on the road for more then 4-5 days tops. With that being said I'm learning towards driving. There will be monotony but it's going to be a lifetime experience.

I'm going to be working at Universal City (USH), so I'm looking for places that are fairly close as I've heard that traffic is pretty bad and I'd like the commute to be no more than a half hour. So I've been looking at west hollywood, burbank, north glendale, south pasadena etc to rent an apartment. It's difficult to decide until I get out there. I'd welcome any feedback on good areas!

you won't regret it. I drove from Chicago to Phoenix on rt 66, then back to chicago up through utah and hopped on to I70... WOW beautiful.

both are totally different... 70 is definitely boring east of denver, but everything west of it is spectacular, and on 66 it's awesome to see the landscape change from fields and rolling hills / forests to the desert and plateaus to the mountians in the horizon.

you will not regret driving, whichever road you take.

Drove from San Fran to Birmingham, AL by way of Vegas in a 2000 V6 Camaro with no AC in August a number of years ago. Death Valley was fun, I bought a bag of ice, this is true, and put it in my lap and let it "melt" all over me, but it's so dry out there that by the time we stopped all the ice was gone and my pants were dry.

Cost is one thing, te experience another, but just remember that the true cost includes your time, it's a haul, but If I had it to do again, I'd take my time and stop more to see stuff, as is, we were trying to drive 10-12 hours a day to hurry up and get back.

Drive, you won't regret it...as others pointed out, see this beautiful country via road trip...if you plan it out, you can make your timeframe of 4-5 days and still see some cool stuff along the way. Just have to decide the route and go from there.

I drive from Detroit, MI to Mobile, AL about 4 times a year for college/holidays (granted its much less of a trip than your talking about). I love the drive. Any other 5th gen car out on the road is like magnetized to you and you make these cool groups every now and then. That being said, sometimes its just you and it gets boring quick.

I hate driving across town to get groceries... I say fly, save all those insane miles on your car. When it gets there from the shipper then drive it up the PCH.
