Illinois to Wyoming, about 23 hours. Wife and I will do it in 2, maybe 3 days. No rush this year, I have the whole general season.

My hunting partner this year will drive 15 hours to get to my house. Then we will load his gear in my truck and drive another 23.

Without stops it's right around 18. I usually don't push it real hard so usually 21.

11th year making the drive.....NC to N. Colorado....28 hours. We have driven straight through a couple times or just caught a few hours sleep in a gas station parking lot. The last few years we have stopped around the 15-18 hour mark at Kansas City or Topeka and check in a hotel room. 6-7 hours sleep and a hot shower makes day 2 a lot better for arrival and setting up camp.


Last year we got there just in time for a rain to start. Put up an Easy-up that we use for a cook tent and put in the cots. Slept like babies and finished camp the next morning. Every year it plays out different!

Wow.  A lot of you guys really travel. The areas I hunt are between five minutes and maybe 45 minutes at most. I guess I'm lucky. :-D

I'm doing the stop this year....
I usually just blitz everything through, but I don't want to show up to camp like a zombie and then try to set up.


I'll likely stop somewhere in TX, then finish out strong the next day!
