My "rule" is if it's more than 10 hours, time to look at flying.

Well, if I went w/ the family in the SUV, it'd take me just that long...17 hours. If I drove in my SS (which would put a lot of miles ton the SS that I don't want), I could make it in 14 hours (probaby closer to 15).

Did the drive to LA numerous times from SA. Best time was 14 1/2 hours...and I was moving. I think I'd really enjoy the drive up north, though....the time of year, etc. It would be pretty nice. Either way, gas and ticket would probably be running about the same in price...unless you get that plane ticket now for real cheap.

EDIT:

18: End at ---- Stonehill Cir
Thousand Oaks, CA 91360-1919, US Map

Total Est. Time: 19 hours, 36 minutes Total Est. Distance: 1398.94 miles


Hmm....if it took 14 hours to drive this but it's a couple hundred more miles than the drive up north, the drive up north could be a little shorter than what I previously thought. Cool.

might be there, even if i lived in mexico i would probably go, simply for the fact that, i drive a 2004 trailblazer, its nothing special trust me, its compltetely stock accept for the tires, and the reason for that is i try and focus extra money on the silverado, which i hardly ever drive. and i never miss a chance to drive my silverado weather its down the street or into indiana (my favorite state), or to where ever theres something going on where i feel like showing off. and it does a hell of a brake torque (FYI)

If you flew, then you wouldn't have your car to toy with while being there. Its a long drive for both of us though.

Yeah... that may be a bit too long to drive. I do enjoy a nice road trip though. But I have nothing fun to drive. I may look into a plane ticket, but I doubt I'll be able to make it that far.

According to Mapquest.

Total Estimated Time: 25.0 hours 51 minutes
Total Estimated Distance: 1770.68 miles

Biggest problem for me besides distance is that takes me through Southern Wyoming and after driving through there on my way here when I moved from GA, I swore I would never drive through that part of the state unless absolutely necessary. I swear I drove through all of Southern Wyoming and saw 10 other cars and that was it. I would get to half a tank of gas and start wondering where the next gas station was. Would much rather drive through some other part of the state where the population is above double digits.

I feel the pain of those who have to drive a long way. Last summer I drove from Louisville to Tampa, Florida, without stopping for sleep. It took 15 hours and when I finally got to the resort and checked into my room, I totally collapsed.

And I did it again on the way back. :/

Heh. I make that trip 1-2 times a year (DC to Tampa...a little closer, but not much).
