Hi- I am new today to this sight. I am driving from LA to NY June 30th (leaving at 5am) with a husband and 7 & 12 yr old kids. We HAVE to be in the Hamptons by July 4th (Fri eve). Google says 1 day + 17hrs (yeah right!)I thought I'd take their route but stopping each night late to sleep. How long really will it take. Cost: $600, Hotels $50-80 Per night, food (cheap)- whereas flying is $1000 one way for 4 and car is $1200 to ship plus when you fly its a 10 hr ordeal anyhow..Help roadtrippers!
