New poster here, but just thought I'd get a few opinions from people. In a few weeks I'll be driving to my parents' house in Portland, OR from my place in Denver, which is about a 1,250 mile drive. I've driven it before, usually with my mother or brother, and we've always done it in two days because she's finicky about long days. However, I tend to like long drives, and this time my only passenger would be my dog (a lab, so pretty low maintenance).
Long story short, I'm considering doing this all in one go, with maybe a couple hours' rest along the way, rather than staying a full overnight. Thoughts?
