  1. Default New York City to Chicago

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to make a trip to Chicago pretty soon, and was wondering how fast you thought I could make it. I'd be taking I-80 the whole way, planning on very few stops and decently high speed for the duration. Do you think I could make the trip from about 6AM to 10PM, or somewhere around there?

    I have a pair of 800 watt subwoofers and a friend in the car so I'm not overly worried about going crazy, I'll be able to entertain myself and there's a beautiful girl waiting for me on the other side of the trip.

    Thanks!

    It's 800 miles...in winter driving conditions... If the road is reasonably dry and you are well rested -- yes, I think you could do it. Here are some speed run tips and some winter driving tips. But if you hit any of the kind of weather that has been slamming that part of the country of late -- you need to figure two full days of driving with speeds (at best) averaging 40 mph....

    Thanks, I will look at both of those articles.

    If the conditions are clear I also have a very good radar detector which should allow me to make some more time, within reason.

    Default Here's another resource

    Here is a list of places you can stop on major Interstate routes for rest and looking around -- scroll down to I-80 for your trip.
