Does anyone know how long this would take? I'm working on a thing in which this is a major part (vague) but I just realised I have no idea how long this would take.
Three days? Ten? Two weeks? I don't get out much.
UPDATE: Google maps have been suggested, but annoyingly not Mac-compatible. Nor are lawnmowers. However m'erstwhile colleague Paula says:
he distance from NYC to San Francisco is 2929 miles (I think San Francisco is more cinegenic than LA), and the speed limit is about 55mph so it could technically be done in under 54 hours if you drove at 55mph the whole way. If you drove for 8 hours a day at 55 mph you'd cover 440 miles per day and cover the whole distance in just under a week.
In real life, I'd say anything from 10 days upwards depending on whether one is being chased by bandits or not.
... which was very useful. Ta.
