Is a 15 hr drive doable for one person alone?

I really don't want to stop for an overnight break.

It is doable if you really need to do it. In some parts of the country, though, the roads could get bad and you may not have a choice but to stay the night somewhere. Check the road conditions before you leave. Make sure you have a VERY good night sleep the night before and have some protein drinks or protein bars in the car with you. Drive safely! :)

Yeah if I have to I will but I'd prefer just drinking lots of energy drinks and just get it done. But I've never driven that far so...

energy drinks have an effect on the brain. it will keep you hyper, sure. think about how many you'll need to drink when you're brain is running on nothing more than high caffeine. think about how often you're going to have to pee.

Of course I'll stop to get food. And I'd probably only have 3 for the rough night part.. And if I drink the 5hr energy ones I won't have to pee so much..

I think it's doable. I drove 24 hours straight from Kansas and finally stopped in Arizona. Be sure to drink coffee and the 5 hours!

I have done 30 hours and it is horrible. You need to start your trip as soon as you wake up so you are awake for the whole trip.

I can't believe you people are condoning this. If you crash, no one will feel sorry for you, especially the one you collide with! It's called reckless driving with points involved. But if you do and you do... well you just can't fix stupid!
