Hey everybody, let me start by saying thank you for your help. Its incredible to see how supportive everyone here is of each other. Lets all pay it forward.
My future wife and I are taking our first road trip. She couldn't be more excited. Below is our timeline. Red is mandatory, green is not. Are my expectations realistic?
Oct 7th, 2am -Niagara Falls- NY- Depart to arrive @ Nashville
Oct 7th - Nashville- Spend the afternoon, leave for Houston @ sunrise
Oct 8th - Houston- NFL Night Game Colts VS Texans @8:25
Oct 9/10 - Austin- Music Festival, leave for Dallas @ sunrise
Oct 11- Dallas- NFL Patriots vs Cowboys @4:25, leave for Chicago @ sunrise
Oct 12/13- Chicago- Leave for Toronto, ON night of sept 13
We would get tons or rest and wake up at 2am on the 7th in efforts of making it to Nashville in the afternoon. She wants to see the our country music capital. Leave Nashville early on the 8th in time to make to arrive to Houston by 8pm the same day. From Houston to Austin on the 9th. Be well rested for the music festival on the 10th. Leave Austin early on the 11th to arrive in Dallas by 4:25 (we dont have tickets to this one.. We hear the bars in Dallas are amazing during pigskin season). Leave Dallas early on the 12th to arrive in Chicago that evening.
^^^ - Its beginning to look a lot like christmas.. :)
Whats important is we make it to the football game on the 8th, the music festival on the 10th and Chicago on the 12. Between Niagara and Houston we gotta sleep somewhere may as well be Nashville! Only thing that may be in excess is going to Dallas to watch the game.
What do you think? Her and I can both drive up to 6 hours at a time. We also dont mind sleeping in the car if we have to.
Let me know if this is realistic. The routs are pretty self explanatory. I will use google maps (?)
