Hi! The longest roadtrip I have ever done is 8 hours (and only once at that), which is nothing compared to the 2700 miles we are planning this August due to a cross country move.
We will be driving from Yosemite to New Jersey (maps say the quickest way is the I-80 all the way across) with 4 kids, ages 6, 4, 2, and 8 months. I am trying to get an idea of how quickly we (2 drivers) can make this trip with the kids? I am not really interested in stopping to see the sights because I don't think the kids will get much out of it at their ages, plus school starts the following week, so my goal is to get there and settled.
So, how many miles/hours is reasonable per day? Is it better to drive early (leave early/quit early) or late (leave later/drive late at night)? I want to get there quickly, but I want to be safe and I don't want it to be unreasonably hard on the kids.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
