Or, I should say, a semi-permanent road trip, with occasional stops back home to regroup. Looking for suggestions on the following:
Car: Want a car that gets good mileage and is rugged enough to handle driving long distances in a variety of weather conditions and goeographical environments.
Communication: I'd like to be connected to the Web as much as possible while on the road (in the U.S., anyway); how do I do this? What other sorts of communication devices should I have on hand.
Packing: What must I have in the car, not just in terms of clothes and toiletries, but for self-protection and emergencies.
Feel free to toss in any other suggestions you might have.
