Driving from Denver to Tulsa will take nine hours and forty-six minutes, this is a long time to be stuck on the road alone. It’s mainly just a few small towns along the way and fewer fast food hotels, driving along this road will have anyone bored out of their minds, so you need a few distractions that will not be too distracting. The driver could listen to a podcast of their favorite show, if they are music fans they could make themselves a playlist, singing along to loud music is good therapy for anyone.
The drive is long, potholes along the way will cause backache or foot cramps therefore it’s advisable for you to take this long trip with a friend. Both of you can take shifts driving the car while the other rests, it will also provide company henceforth it will not be as boring as driving alone. A friend will help you sing along to music and you can tell tales about anything, choose someone who you can relate to or who can be trusted not to reveal your secrets. Choosing someone you don’t like will cause tension during the drive making it even more tiresome than it was originally supposed to be.
Having children with you during this long drive will keep you on your toes as kids are known to get cranky in enclosed spaces without somewhere to play. You might need to make a few stops or even pull up to a bed and breakfast so that they can rest by sleeping peacefully. The driving time will consequently be added up to twelve hours on the road. Children will need to be occupied by another adult so there needs to be two parents or guardians, one parent can drive while the other keeps the kids busy, later they can interchange their roles.
It’s more advisable to fly to Tulsa but that will also have added time to your schedule because you will need to account for the time it takes to drive to the airport. Going through customs before boarding the plane, after arriving, the time it takes to drive from the airport to your destination will be long too. The time it takes to fly is a seventh of the time it takes to drive to Tulsa, but a road trip with your friend will be much more fun. Going to new places, stopping to snap-shots of beautiful scenery as the drive there is filled with beautiful nature.
