My friend and I are going from Sacramento, CA to New York, NY. We think we can speed run it in 4 days: Sac to Salt Lake City, Salt Lake to Lincoln (or even Omaha) NE, NE to Toledo OH or thereabouts, OH to NYC. As seasoned long-distance drivers, I think we're up for the 2 long haul days...but time estimates would be 12 hrs not including stops. First and last days are about 9 hrs, no stops. (times estimated by googlemaps, I-80 the whole way).
Reasonable or masochistic?
So wish we had more time, but what can you do. We can actually do 5 days if absolutely necessary.
I read "the Art of the Speed Run"- very informative so thanks!! I'm wondering if we chose the right route. Any alternate city suggestions also welcomed.
