Well, I used to live right near the port of Elizabeth in NJ, and now
I live right near Mt. Washington in NH. It's about 6 hour's drive
(OK, 4 by quattro!) between them by highway. A little more if you want
to take the scenic route. I can give lots of suggestions if you want.

>From NH to Pikes Peak is about 3 days, given 15-20 hour days. It adds
up to about 2000-2500 miles (again, depending on route), so figure
40-50 hours of driving.
