Definitely make frequent stops. If you aren't in a huge hurry, try to take advantage of walking the trails at rest areas. Bring alot of books if your kiddo is into them. They make little lap desks with a cushion on the bottom that (if it works with your carseat) would be ideal for coloring/drawing. You can usually find them at Target or Wal-Mart. If you aren't too bothered by noisy toys, bring some of those along. I find that my daughter (2 1/2) will keep herself entertained for a long time I we buy her a couple of new toys for a trip.
