I agree frequent stops are your friend. So are the instant air activated heating patches. I use these when I can't have my heating pad along to help with muscle aches and soreness. Also, bring your favorite slippers or socks to have on in the car, no sense confining your feet to shoes if you don't have to. I usually wear my slip on shoes and kick them off as soon as I get settled. I'm heading out for a 6 hour drive in a week, and I am slightly dreading it. Hope you can get through your trip ok :)
