Road trip question.. Chicago to Seattle
So... I'm driving to Seattle with one other driver.
We leave on a Thursday evening and need to arrive on Saturday night or at least Sunday morning.
Thats roughly 3 days and the most direct route seems rather boring.. 2055 miles through WI, MN, ND, MT and WA.
What I would like to do is go from Chicago to Denver (1010 miles) non stop, rest there and then go Denver to Seattle (1331 miles) with one more stop along the way. (if you dont want to do the math... IL to WA via CO is 2341 miles total.)
Am I crazy for rerouting to Denver?
Is it reasonable to think 2 of us can do Chicago to Denver non stop? (est. 14 hours)
Should I just stick with the first mentioned route and not mess with Denver??
Any suggestions, tips or advise would be greatly appreciated!
