Or a bit of a compromise:
Train, then public trans at individual destinations, or ask your friends in each location to drive you.
Travel/Holiday is too important to spend your time searching for a parking space/a gas station/guys-who-smashed-your-window-and-snatched-your-Nikon.

The dogs bark, the caravan passes.

You meet the same people on the way up as you do on the way down.

Hell of a lot of driving, but done in stages I guess you'll be ok.  Do the dogs get car sick?  Tongue

Can't drive all day, I'm not Polish Huh??

It's going to take about 3-4 weeks. Regular breaks for the old hound.

The toll roads are divine.

How many people? I can offer four seats and a lorra space for three (drugged) dogs. Attach a trailer (or my caravan), and Bob's your uncle. Make me an offer. I'll drive if you pay the ferry and expenses.

I think you should get a red car.  Or maybe black.

No need to thank me, boyrader.

You're wasting your time and money on cars. Get a motorbike for you and hire a van for the wife and hounds.
