Disclaimer: I am French, I have used autoroutes in about all parts of France :) TL;DR: There's normally no planning needed, the aires are sufficiently close together that you can start searching when you need one and get to a suitable one within 10 min/20 min assuming you're not caught in traffic jams (a real possibility during school holidays, look-up ...

Many cities and counties are passing laws designed to solve the homeless problem by motivating the homeless to leave the area. One of the methods has been to make it illegal to sleep in cars or other places. It is my opinion (and usually the courts agree) that these laws violate the homeless person's constitutional rights. However, that doesn't stop the ...

Rules regarding sleeping in a car in a city will be defined by that city. Rules regarding sleeping in a car outside the city will be defined by either the county or state or both. As a general rule of thumb you will find very few cities that allow sleeping in a car on the streets. People get away with it by parking in less public spots, alleys, behind ...

The obvious route is straight across on I-80, plenty of motels just off the highway that would have fairly easy parking for your truck and trailer. But it does not go past much in the way of well known tourist stops. You could visit AAA and check out their state by state guides for off the beaten path possibilities. Drive time is about 24 hours or so IN A ...

Recently came back from the trip. Ganzi is an option for better accomedation (more options), and we did stayed there on the way back from Maun. Unfortunately, it was too far from Gaborone for us (670 Km), and added another 100 Km to the trip. We did found a place to stay in closer to the middle: Kang village which is 420 Km from Gaborone and about 400 Km ...

It's not that extreme. For mountains and forests: a) Don't block the road, not even partially. If that means you can't park, don't. And don't park in turns etc. where the car can't be seen by other drivers before reaching it. (Remember buses, on roads where you would never expect them). b) If it is eg. a road to a ski lift in winter, or touristy for ...
