I used to drive straight thru from San Antonio-Daytona Beach (1125 miles, 17 hours); Bossier City, LA - Daytona Beach, Fl (900 miles, 15 hours); Dover, De-Daytona Beach, Fl (900 miles, 15 hours); Belleville, Il-Daytona Beach, 1000 miles, 16.5 hours). I just couldn’t see stopping and paying $100-$120 a night just to sleep. I used to didn’t mind driving but I hate it now.Most people say 300 miles is good.
I drove from Tampa to Cincinnati once in 18 hours which was 1025 miles; it took three power drinks.
Funny story, my wife had been sleeping all night. When we got home she asked me why I parked in such a dark area. I told her we were home, she was amazed.
It's weird when you wake up to 72 degrees and get home to 14 degrees. LOL
