The farthest I have ever driven is from California to Washington and that was quite a long time ago. We are thinking about driving from Windsor, CA to Williamsburg, VA arriving in VA around July 1st. Well, actually it would be me driving with the 3 kids ages 16, 14, & 9 and my husband flying out to meet us there. According to Mapquest it is about 2,958 miles. It also says it is abut a 43 hour drive so I am thinking it should take us 7 days to get there. This is what I am thinking my costs would be: $250 in fuel each way, $100 a day for 4 of us on food, $40 a night for a motel. We just want a clean bed and shower for the trip when we get there we will have nice accomodations to stay in. So a total cost of $2,380. Does that sound right?
