you're lucky you aren't going
Myself and a buddy went from Toronto area down to Ft. Myers, we stopped after 20 hours because he felt sick, I was still good, but it just wasn't worth risking going further.
I did the same thing by myself a few years later. I did 20 hours, and was super wired, but I know how flat and boring Florida actually is. And add on top of that, I spent 90% of the trip in snow and rain, so figured the smartest thing was to pull over and recharge. Could have done it, but to push is silly.
Especially with the night time driving, you don't know what animals you might hit, and as someone else mentioned, traffic jams and etc. They might miss their boat by trying to be heros.
