600 a day, for a maximum of two consecutive days - or 400 a day for a maximum of 3 consecutive days. Otherwise the kids drive us nuts.

We drive UP to 6 hrs. At 5 hrs if we haven't booked something before, we start to look where to stop.

6 hrs on my butt in a truck is usally my limit. We pushed to 7 and I tell ya that extra hr. killed us...well me more than anyone else

So we figure about 50-55 miles per hr. guesstimate and get about 300-330 miles a day. longer than that we just don't want to do it. And while doing this we usually stop 2 times only.

I like MaverickBBD's rule of twos. Two hundred miles a day, stay 2 days, cocktails by two p.m. Many times we only stay one day so that means cocktails at 1?

I have found "books on CD" to be a Godsend for long distance driving. We have found that Non-fiction (history, science, etc) is better for us, as you don't have to keep track of plot points or main characters while driving. Kind of annoying when you miss a major event in a story because you had to avoid running over the econobox car that just cut you off - with non-fiction I just find it easier to pay attention to driving.


I am a big fan of old time radio, I burn CDs in MP3 format and can fit over 20 hours of shows on one CD I have been a member of RUSCsince 2006 and pay the $60 a year rate but there are a lot of options

Monthly: $7.50 per month
Quarterly: $18.00 per quarter
Annually: $60.00 per annum
3-Day Trial: $2.95 and thereafter, $7.50 per month

I have always been under the impression that time plus distance equals what time you wake up and when the ice is ready.


Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

At the time we had a 7 month old and a 2 year old, I set up the route, my husband drove 300-350 miles a day. It was about 6-7 hours with 1 pit stop for food and to stretch, and a second for potty break. It was perfect for the kids, dog and us. I'm also a planner, so I had reservations set up at each overnight stop. Worked out perfectly. We'll be doing the same route out to Yellowstone this year.

Our neighbors took several road trips with young kids. They get on the road early (before 5 AM) and get a few hours driving in while the kids are still asleep in their pj's with pillows and blankets. At the first pitstop they get kids dressed, fed, teeth brushed and drive a couple more hours. The next stop is longer with lots of active playing then lunch. Back in the car for another few hours, during which the kids drift off for naps.

Six hours a day in a car seat is pretty hard on a little body, especially with no footrest and sitting in a diaper. If it was me, I'd leave the family at home and use the two weeks travel time to take a different trip with them, one with less driving and more time to enjoy. Whatever you decide will be the right decision for you. :-)

I try to keep it under 350 and I make a stop at least every 1 1/2 - 2 hours to at least stretch if I don't my shoulders and neck get sore and my wife's hips start hurting her. But in 3 to 4 hours I have to get diesel 26 gallons at 11 MPG does not last too long so we only make one stop between fill-ups usually at a rest stop to get a geocache.
