    When my wife and I were just dating we drove from South Carolina to Seattle and back. It was an extremely memorable experience (and proved we could take that next step and get married without fear of killing each other [​IMG]). I would whole heartedly recommend however that you either stay in a hotel or have an RV. Sleeping in a Honda Civic EX is NOT a way to enjoy your morning.
