Is there any way to do this?
We used to make regular trips from pgh to baltimore - alone, my wife or me, 4.5 hours. Together, 5 hours, no matter who drove. With kids, 5.5 hours. With MIL, about 6 (she's handicapped)
Day vs night?
Weekend on the PA turnpike has a LOT more traffic than weeekdays - usually. Had a few times where the traffic was abnormally heavy (or light).
SPent 20 minutes at the turnpike exit on some sunday evenings when everyone is returning home.
Now add a TT and I know our avg speed will be down.
Night, winter, weather all affect your speeds and therefore your times.
Use mapquest/google to get an idea and then adjust for how you drive, who's with you, etc. There's no way to be sure - ever - how long it will take. We've stopped to eat and been in and out in 40 minutes, other times we've waited 40 minutes to get a seat. Mapquest et al can't possible predict that!
Also, get a GPS for your ride - it will keep an ETA updated as you go along. It can be rather disheartening to have it say, when you're 3 hours from home, 'eta 11pm' and you stop to eat and upon resuming it travel it now says 'eta 12:20' ! But at least you have an idea, a realistic one.
