Where is a good place between MA and MS to stop for the night? I”m driving there and this is my 1st road trip?

Question by sailorchick8786: Where is a good place between MA and MS to stop for the night? I”m driving there and this is my 1st road trip?
I’m not sure how to go about planning this. I know that its going to take about 23 hours not giving traffic a thought. Should I book a hotel ahead and make little stops goal destinations for the trip??

Answer by NOLA guy
The map programs simply divide the miles by 70mph and don’t even take stopping for fuel into account.

Boston to Jackson is over 1400 miles, and Boston to Gulfport is almost 1500 miles (which is closer to 30 hours of driving).

Boston to Washington, DC is about 450 miles. You almost certainly will encounter heavy traffic in the “Boston-Washington corridor” so try to get through it on the first day. Stop for the night somewhere in VA past Washington, such as Winchester, VA.

Knoxville, TN is about halfway between Winchester, VA and Jackson, MS..

Have your car serviced & inspected by a real mechanic before leaving home. Make sure you know how to change the tire, and that the spare is good. Also make sure your registration, inspection sticker, & proof of insurance are up-to-date.

Yes, make hotel reservations. Note that “government/military rate” is NOT always the best rate at a hotel but do ask.

Where is a inexpensive place to stay outside Washington DC with access to the metro?

Question by angel1183: Where is a inexpensive place to stay outside Washington DC with access to the metro?
I would like to go there mid August. I don’t mind staying in a suburb as long as there is an easy way to get to the city. I want to stay in a motel/hotel, not in a hostile. Thank you!

Answer by nickdc1960
The closer into the city you get, the more you will pay for a hotel. So, your best bet is to find a hotel that is outside of Washington DC BUT close to the Metro (subway system).

I hightly recommend Virginia, as it is safer than Maryland. I’ve had people visit from out of town and I had them stay at a place near Van Dorn Street near Alexandria Virginia; I think it’s a Comfort Inn or Days Inn or something like that. But, it’s only about 1 mile from the Van Dorn Street Metro Station AND they have a free shuttle van if you wish to take it back and forth. They also have free parking at the place.

So, what you want to do is look at the DC Metro/subway system map online THEN compare it to the hotels that are featured online. Most will indicate how far they are from the Metro stations and if they offer a shuttle van.

MIT’s “Talos” robocar, the 4th place finalist in the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge

This autonomous vehicle was MIT’s entry in the DARPA Grand Challenge. Pasting from the Wikipedia page about the 2007 competition:

The third competition of the DARPA Grand Challenge[3], known as the "Urban Challenge", took place on November 3, 2007 at the site of the now-closed George Air Force Base (currently used as Southern California Logistics Airport), in Victorville, California (Google map).[1] The course involved a 96 km (60-mile) urban area course, to be completed in less than 6 hours. Rules included obeying all traffic regulations while negotiating with other traffic and obstacles and merging into traffic.

The million winner was Tartan Racing, a collaborative effort by Carnegie Mellon University and General Motors Corporation, with their vehicle "Boss", a Chevy Tahoe. The second place finisher earning the million prize was the Stanford Racing Team with their entry "Junior", a 2006 Volkswagen Passat. Coming in third place was team Victor Tango from Virginia Tech winning the 0,000 prize with their 2005 Ford Escape hybrid, "Odin".[4] MIT placed 4th, with Cornell University and University of Pennsylvania/Lehigh University also completing the course.

While the 2004 and 2005 events were more physically challenging for the vehicles, the robots operated in isolation and only encountered other vehicles on the course when attempting to pass. The Urban Challenge required designers to build vehicles able to obey all traffic laws while they detect and avoid other robots on the course. This is a particular challenge for vehicle software, as vehicles must make "intelligent" decisions in real time based on the actions of other vehicles. Other than previous autonomous vehicle efforts that focused on structured situations such as highway driving with little interaction between the vehicles, this competition operated in a more cluttered urban environment and required the cars to perform sophisticated interactions with each other, such as maintaining precedence at a 4-way stop intersection.
