My son and I are driving across country, staying in inexpensive motels. Can we do it comfortably in 5 days and still see a few sights along the way?
Shirley, with lunch breaks and gas stops you are looking at 9-hour days easy. While I think it would be good to have stops to break up the monotony of the freeway, I wouldn't pick anything too far off of your path. I have done several drives like that and by day 3, your body is in protest.
Stay Safe and Have Fun. Driving tired is almost no different than driving drunk, be careful.
