My daughter needs her car in Philly this summer, and we have agreed to drive it there with her from Los Angeles. Due to complicated circumstances, my husband will drive part way with her, and I will fly and meet them in Chicago and do the final part of the drive.
I have ordered a road atlas, and have read suggested routes going LA- Grand Junction, Omaha, Chicago to Philly. Is this the most direct, fastest route? Is it around 11 hours a day of driving, with minimal stops? I am sure the intention of most people on this forum is to stop and smell the roses, but my daughter is antsy to just get the car there, and I do not want any of us to do a marathon of nonstop driving. I apologise if I am not getting into the correct spirit of things here, and another time I would love to savor the experience.
The route that I had seen recommended is three nights, four days.
Is this correct? Any other suggestions? I need to figure out the timing so we can coordinate flights in and out of Chicago for my H and myself.
Thanks for any info you can provide!
