    Default vancouver to minneapolis

    it's a long drive, i know, but we need to go from vancouver on a thursday morning to minneapolis on a friday afternoon/early evening. is it possible? is it worth it? or should we just fly instead?

    it'll be in late september in the middle of a road trip that started in phoenix about a week prior, so we'll be no strangers to long drives. but we'd could just dump the rental car and fly to minneapolis and get another, but i'm curious about the route, the sights, and the realistic driving time. what do you think? should we go for it?

    It is a possible drive, but only if you only stop for fuel -- with very minimal stretching breaks. If you like driving fast and have at least two, very competent, high-speed drivers you can cover that 1800 miles in about 32 hours of continous driving.

    I really like the route, but the days will be getting shorter then and a lot of your driving will be in the dark! Bob
