Time to Pikes Peak

>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.

In 1981 four skiers returned to Stowe, Vermont from Snowbird (Salt Lake City, Utah) in just under 48 hours.

Route via Chicago.

Alternated drivers.  Stopped only for food, gas & switching drivers.

Car - AMC Eagle 4wd station wagon.

Milage 2,500 or 2,800 miles I think?  Probably speeds of 60 - 75 mph, seldom 80.
