Driving Question

Hey all I've got about an 800 mile trip next week from middle Georgia to Dover Delaware and would like to get some advice on which vehicle I should drive, my crown vic or the stroke. Considering my lack of experience with snow and such just would like some opinions from you all. Thanks!

Don't go!

Well, if you must go, check forecast the morning you leave. Check the whole route going, and returning. Then decide. If heading for snow issues, take the PS. Buy 4-6 tubes of sand and place over rear axle for additional traction.

Wait a minute, do they sell tubes of sand in Georgia?

When in slow going city type driving with cars trying to figure out what they are doing out there in the first place, I kick my 4x4 into 4 low. Why? It keeps ME from doing something stupid, like being impatient.

Disclaimer: The opinion stated here is solely my opinion and I take no responsibility for the driving habits of others. Exercise your own judgement based on your own driving skills.

P.S. I put softer music on during snow events, soothes the savage beast, and helps keep "white knuckles" from appearing.

Be safe!
