This question already has an answer here:
I am going from NYC to San Antonio TX- about 28 hours- and have planned several stops. My dog loves to be in the car. I am wondering if it is better to go a short (ie 4 hr) day and then a long one (ie 8-9 hrs) or to balance them out. Some of the stops are good in the short days and the long ones have few places to stop. Any advice very welcome.
