I'm planning on leaving for a road trip with some friends on Friday to head to DC (from Michigan). I'm currently not having any major problems with my UC but I am still very nervous about the whole trip. I don't want to have to stop frequently, or have to go #2 in gas station bath rooms! And i'm also on a low residue diet, so fast food is not an option, and other food choice is very limited. Does anyone have any suggestions for a happy healthy road trip? I plan on bringing alot of my own snacks to munch on and keep in our hotel room for the week as well. Any good UC friendly places to eat when in DC? And words of encourgment are appreciated! I just decided I had to go, your only in college once, and i should live out some of those experiences UC already hinders so much of my outgoing personality and college life!
