Good question.   Mapquest says it is a 13.5  hour drive non-stop.

The truck driver has to stop in Maryland to drop off some other cars on his way up.   That plus gas, food and an overnight rest?  

They said early as Sat night, late as Monday morning.    :-\

Can you wait that long?  Do you have the will power David?

Actually, the kid on the right is Tommy Kirk. He was signed to a long term contract with Disney in 1955 and was one of the original Mousketeers. Yes, I believe this pic is from "Spin and Marty." In 1957, he starred in Ol'Yeller (first movie I ever saw in a theater!). He made a number of other Disney flicks. In 1964, when he was 23, his bosses found out he was gay and he was immediately released from his contract. His career went down the drain from that point on. He struggled with drug addiction and various other demons. At present, he runs a carpet and upholstery business, which is successful, but his acting career has basically been kaput since 1972--all because he was gay.

L

I forgot all about Tommy Kirk!  Yes he made a boat load of Disney movies when I was a kid.  That is so very sad what happened to him.  Just because he was gay?  Hell even in the 50's and 60's Hollywood was full of gay men.  The ignorance of some people is astounding.
