I'm planning on driving from Boston to Northern California in a few weeks. I have about 6 days to get there so I was planning on taking I-90 to I-80 since as far as I can tell that's the shortest route and thus would allow for a slightly more leisure pace. According to mapquest the total mileage is slightly over 3000 miles. It also estimates the time as being 44 hours- in which case we would only be driving 7.5 hours a day- But then I was reading a few of the threads where the mediators were suggesting using a 55mph average to calculate total drive time. Using that calculation the total drive time is about 55 hours. Which means we would be driving over 9 hours a day. Still not terrible with two drivers but it still also doesn't leave a ton of time for non gas/reststop type stops... Is that correct? Is there a quicker way to go? Any advice would be very much apreciated.
