    May give you a run for your money Karen, I plan to pop back to the UK May time so if everything lines up that would be around 3800 miles back from Illinois

    Distance: 292.86 miles, about 5 hours 16 mins, including the detour to pick up Gavin.

    Then of course there are the breaks, where I dont drive much more than 1.5 hours at at time, so we are talking 7 hours!!!! with 3 breaks!

    So if I start at around 10, we'd be there for about 5pm!!
