Road Trip Travel Advice - 2 Days or 3?

Jump to last reply

I am planning to go on a road trip this coming summer from Madison, Wisconsin to Forks, Washington. It is a 31 hour drive straight through. I need advice to whether I should make it a 2 day or a 3 day travel time each way. I will have one other adult passenger with me who is technically able to drive, but has had minimal driving experience. Because of this, I may be the only one driving that vehicle. If I make the travel time a 2 day trip each way, then I would have to be driving 15.5 hours each day to get there in time, not including pit stops. I'm debating if that will be too much to handle, given the most I have driven by myself is 2.5 hours each way. I have been an active passenger on a 10 hour trip though, and I believe that I fared pretty well, but I also wasn't the one driving. I'm afraid that if I make it a 3 day travel time though, that it will too expensive and that my friend will not want to commit to a trip that is that long. I really want to make this trip a reality, but I'm afraid of not being able to make it to places on time and that I will get too exhausted driving that far... Does anyone have advice for me?
