Driving San Diego to Seattle

I'm driving from San Diego to Seattle leaving tomorrow 11/22 at 3 pm and want to make the trip in 2 days. Where would 9 hours from Sam Diego take me to stay overnight and stop driving at midnight?

I have done San Diego to Portland many times. Both stopping for the night and driving through (stopping for some sleep at a rest area). Minimum 20 hours drive time to Portland so add another 3-4 hours to Seattle. The worst part is driving through Los Angeles. Bakersfield to Stockton seems like it takes forever. I usually stop for the night north of Sacramento but depended on what time I left SD. You will have a much better and safer trip if you get some rest in a hotel. Last trip when I slept for a while at a rest area, it took a few days to recover energy wise. Also check the weather in the Siskiyou County mountains. Almost had to spend an unscheduled night in Mount Shastadue to snow. One other suggestion is to check in regularly with someone on your progress.

If you can make it as far as Ashland (Oregon). which is 5 hours more to PDX then another 3 to Seattle) and you have never visited this town before, you are sure to enjoy yourself.  I don't really have accommodations recommendation for you not knowing what your budget is but there is a myriad of B&B's.  I'd stay at the Hostel probably.  But just outside of town, near the N. exit from I5 is a hot springs resort.   It used to be called Jackson Hot Springs but since they have changed the name.  Anyway if you roll into town late, even like 7 pm and still feel like doing something you could go for a soak in the hot mineral pools.  (Also an amazing sauna and steam room).  Have a wonderful road trip.  : )

That's a VERY ambitious timetable you're setting for yourself, and unless you're travelling with someone else who can take over the driving every now and then I wouldn't recommend it.  SD to Seattle is over 1200 road miles and will take about 20 hours not including stops.  If you're driving solo you will put yourself at risk of fatigue and your fatigue will put you and other people in danger.


If I were you I'd limit the driving to 8 hours a day.  Perhaps San Diego to Sacramento on Day 1, Sacramento to Eugene on Day 2, and then Eugene to Seattle on day 3.
