Have Mobile, AL resv. for the return leg with the family.
13 hours to me is pushing it. We normally take 17 hours and that includes stops for gas, food and restroom. But the stops only take about 1 hour total of the 17 hours. My DH also has a lead foot.
I would plan minimum 15 hours to be safe. Also, you never know what road construction or accident you might run into. Or in our case a line of cars backed up a couple of miles only to finally get to the front and see an old car driving reeeaalllyyy sslllooowwwlllyyy.
