Travel planning madness is starting to set in

I'll try and spare you all some of the ahhhhhhh. I have made a paltry checklist and put immensely (but recently conceived) ideas like buy a map and look at it onto the list. I bought a mildy expensive gizmo to keep the iPod upright and powered in the car (more on it as I er, road test it). Oh and all of Aeon Flux on 2 UMD for 11 bucks. That and the purple duct tape are probably the worst impulse buys from Wally world. Come on, it is bright purple duct tape™. No, they didn't have pink.

I'm pretty proud of my road foods selections: rice cakes, dried fruits and raisins, peanut butter crackers, applesauces, and tuna snack kits. The quantity I am much less sure about ... The fact that I've no idea how far I can drive in a day, and thus no idea how long it will take me to drive one thousand miles (
1,076 mi – about 17 hours 25 mins
says Google) or how often I'll need to stop is definitely more on the "OMG freaking out" side. This would indeed be somewhat less exciting (in that respect) if I wasn't going alone. In lieu of a co-pilot I'm stuffing the iPod. And trying to avoid fast food on the road. I don't think the planned prohibition against eating in the car will hold up .. and I couldn't bring myself to buy a bunch of bottles of water. I'll have to get gas every ~300 miles anyway.

Say does anybody have any Audible tokens they haven't used?
