Need to get too Branson in a timely manner and back to Modesto in one week
From Modesto to Branson is about 1890 miles (3800 for the round trip) and will take about 27 hours each way (a little less without traffic). Not counting stops for gas and to eat. You will have to do at least 8 hours a day to get out there and back in a week. That's just to drive out and turn right around and drive back. You will need to do more if you want to stay a day in Branson once you get there.
