I'm driving solo (with my dog) from NYC to Charlotte, NC. I will be driving an SUV with GPS system.
The route I'm taking is: 78 West to 81 South to 77 South. (I'm really familiar with this route so I prefer it over taking 95.) I am trying to avoid the holiday traffic.
I can't leave work until around 5pm on Friday, May 28th. I also need to allow time to pick up the rental car and pack up the car....
My two options are:
1) Leave directly after picking up the car & packing up all my stuff. Realistically, this would be around 9pm.
2) Pickup car, pack up car, go to sleep for 4 hours. So leaving NYC around 2am.
Do you think that it would be OK to drive after 4 hours asleep, assuming I get a good night sleep the night before?
I'm leaning towards option #2... it might be a good time to "escape" NYC (avoid bridge/tunnel traffic) and by the time I get bored & tired, sun will be coming up, around 6am or so, plus I'll hopefully be out of Pennsylvania. And I'll be almost halfway there by the time any holiday traffic starts!
