Hi everyone - this is a great forum and I'm definitely in need of some advice for my first road trip.
My father, husband, and I are planning to drive from Pittsburgh to Seattle at the end of August and we're hoping to make the trip in 3 days. My father is a mega-driver (has done 14 hours a day before, and can comfortable do 10 hours), my husband's max is 6 hours a day, and I only plan to drive 2 hours a day or so as needed. We don't want to drive much after dark, however. We need to get there quickly, so we only plan to stop and see Mt. Rushmore. Other than that, we'll just be stopping for bathroom breaks/gas/etc (unfortunately!)
My questions are:
1.) Is this trip doable in 3 days? If not, how long would you estimate that it will take?
2.) We plan to take the route suggested by googlemaps ( I-80 / I-90). Do you have any other suggestions (especially ones that will get us there more quickly)?
