So my plans have changed a bit, and I am considering moving down to Asheville, NC for the winter and maybe for longer if I really love it. The drive is about 18 hours and I will be doing the drive early January of 09. I am a bit nervous because I have not driven more than 4 hours by myself and its going to be during the winter. Does anyone have any advice for me or have previous experience doing this kind of a trip? Any comforting notes would be appreciated too!
