First, determining the proper vehicle is critical because it will deliver the moment-to-moment experience during the drive. Would you rather have something with a lot of horsepower that can go fast, or rather something with more safety features? The ride will go a long way to determining how comfortable the ride is. This is the same concept as building out your investment portfolio. Constructing a portfolio that is comfortable, understandable, and in line with your goals is the first step in your journey.
Secondly, there on road trips there are no straight lines from where you are to where you're going. You have to navigate the infrastructure that is in place and use directions that take into account traffic patterns, time of day, construction and delays, and the most direct path possible. This is the same idea behind financial planning. Working with the retirement, estate or tax planning infrastructures are necessary to make sure that the most direct path is taken along your journey.
If you asked someone how you should drive to Washington D.C. and they said "go rent and car and head east" there is a good chance you end up in a Yaris and in Jacksonville, FL. The advice was not wrong... but it lacked detail and specifics to have a reasonable chance at sucess.
