I'll be leaving between 6-8am, planning on arriving around dinner time (5-7pm). I'll take interstates as much as possible, either down I29 or I35. I would prefer to just drive straight through, pausing only for meals, gas, and bathroom breaks. I'm visiting the University of Missouri down in Columbia, and will be returning on Sunday. I drive a Honda Civic, and have space for three non-smoking passengers with space in the trunk for luggage. I like to listen to podcasts, and am pretty flexible on what we listen to as long as you are too. I expect to split gas evenly; I estimate ~$75 in total.
Can pick you up along the way. Gas money is helpful.
