I'm wondering what the fastest possible time would be for a solo road trip from Ithaca, NY to SF, CA. Mapquest puts it at 2800 miles and something like 46 hours mostly via I-80.
I love solo road trips and consider myself fairly adept at driving fast and staying awake for long stretches of time (really enjoy driving). The furthest I've done at once is only SF-Vegas (SF-LA is pretty frequent), about 550 miles, where I averaged 77mph on the trip computer, and stopped once for food and gas; about a 7:40 trip.
Is 4 days / 700 miles a day a reasonable goal for this NY-CA drive? It would take place in either late May/early June or late July/early August.
On a side note, how is the cell phone reception along I-80? Hwy 50?
