    1800 Miles if he was back in the old days and left at Midnight Monday Morning you ran 10 Slept 8 got up and ran for another 10 meaning you Drove over 15 hours in one day. DO that 2 days in a row and you can rack up the miles. Do not ask me how I know this aka Salinas CA to Salem IL in 44 Legal as Hell. He would only need 30 hours of Drive time to make it in 2 days it can me DONE.

    That's 67 miles an hour. From Monday morning to Wednesday afternoon is more than 48 hours, not 27.

    Sorry. I see you corrected your math.

    27 hrs is what it takes to get there wasn't talking about hrs in a 24 hr period.

    First day was El Paso to the truck parking area near Cumby, TX on I 30. About 693 miles.

    Second day was up to the rest area on I 65 north of Horse Cave, KY. About 700 miles.

    Final stretch was about 441 miles to the customer.

    Averaged about 64 mph.
