    I totally agree. Stock up on some seeds and an empty water bottle or cup and some good tunes just in case you get sleepy and tired. Or find an insomniac and talk to them on the phone. But you should definitely rest. Good luck.

    Longest non-stop trip i've ever did was from Fairmont, WV to Orlando, Fl........14.5 hours, 889 miles. I had a co-driver and was in a Honda Prelude. Your driving over triple that. Be careful and drink a lot of Red Bull.

    Longest non stop trip I've take was Madison, WI to Portland Oregon. ~2000 mi. Took about 24 hours of straight driving. Then back a week later. I had 2 other drivers though. 3000 by yourself would be terrible.

    Longest I've done was 900 in a day, Denver CO to Phoenix AZ. Thankfull thre was 2 of us, otherwise it would have been nasty.

    Really, take the advice from the others - you need to have a rest. If you got in a wreck and you were investigated and found to be sleep-deprived, you'd have the book thrown at you. Have you seen the news today about the plane crash in Buffalo? The pilots were sleep deprived and there's a lot of questions being asked about it.

    Al-Can Highway I presume? your making me jealous! No shame in taking a nap, I would rather enjoy the ride than feel dead the whole way. Have a good ride, and at least you are in a comfortable and reliable truck!

    I've done 1500 and change from CT to Miami (and then back) and then CT to Tampa. It was hell on me cause I did it alone. They weren't non-stop legs tho...

    Be careful man-Driving even 45 mins longer than you should when you are tired can be the equivalent of driving with a .08BAC. I know how much it sucks to stop when you just want to get there- but it's better to take longer and make it without damage than the alternatives.

    Take it from an ex-long haul truck drive just be smart about it. My longest non-stop with out the wheels stoping was from troy IL to beckley WV. Took me 13 hours in a company truck. Rember that an 18 wheeler carries 200 gal of diesel at 6 mpg so it can be done.

    The longest i did in 22 hours was from Daytona Fl to Agusta Ga and the next morning in columbus OH.

    Ok now for the math of your trip
    If you can avg 60mph eat while you drive and dont stop except for gas you can get some so-so sleep.
    start out 0600 in the am drive until 2300 and take a nap until 0600 then drive again until 2300 then take a nap until 0600 then drive until you are there.
    17 hours a day at 60 mph is your 3 days with 4-5 hours of sleep
