The times that we have driven, we have always gone about 9 hours the first day, and then about 7 the next, staying in the Carolinas overnight. I have some friends who always drive straight through, leaving very early in the morning and arriving late evening in Orlando. Some pack coolers full of food and drinks, and then only take bathroom breaks. So...I am thinking of doing this. For those of you that do, what time do you leave? I am thinking of 5am? Figuring a 16 hour drive, plus bathrooms stops, should get us there by 11pm? Any thoughts, tips, experiences with this? Or will I live to regret this idea?!! Thanks!
