    I've done 1000 mile driving days a few times. They're pretty draining. It's harder going east than west, because the timezone changes subtract from your schedule instead of add to it. I haven't (yet) done two days like that back to back, let alone 3 in a row. It's a type of marathon that isn't for most people. Hope you're up for it!

    What's the point of spending a ton of money on wheels and tires to drive an SLS AMG or 911 in the snow?

    Most Edmunds readers would MUCH rather know how nearly EVERY other car you have in you Long-Term fleet does in winter weather - you know, the weather that most people put up with rather that the spoiled people in sunny Southern California.

    Erin, are you planning on stopping by your old Philly neighborhood? How about organizing a "cars and coffee?"

    I have done this trip (and others) several times. It is a lot of fun. Stay safe on the frozen highways, especially in the Rockies. Be sure to take some warm blankets with you. And water.
  • Should be doable, depending on how much you like driving. I did a similar trip in 4 days in a 12 year old Mitsubishi Mirage. It wasn't bad at all.

    The first 3 days look fairly aggressive! Reminds me of my drive from LA to NYC a few years back. I did Santa Monica to Las Vegas to Denver to Des Moines to Toledo to NYC. 4.5 days (half day to Vegas, then 4 days from there). Other than a miserable drive through the Rocky mountains in the middle of a snowstorm, was a pretty uneventful drive. East of Denver, it's all flat until Pennsylvania.

    Have fun and safe travels!

    She will in Missouri and Central Illinois where they just got hit with a huge blizzard. Drive carefully Erin.

    Hard to tell from your pic, but if you end up taking 78 into NJ from PA, you'll be minutes from my house. I'll keep an eye out for a shiny 911 and wave

    Well, at least we know you didn't vanish in the middle of nowhere. And I guess you couldn't resist putting the top down in the 12 degree weather :)

    Drove a 911 Cab from Palm Springs to Toronto last year with my Dad through Texas-> Louisiana, then North. Couldn't pick a better road trip car!
