...not something I'd 'undertake' or advise,, but good luck on your drive.

a general comment for loooong distance drives.... it's good to take a break at dusk,,, it seems driving through the transition of day to night is especially taxing on one's system.
The phenomena seems to be widely recognized.... ''Sunrise and sunset are usually periods of peak exhaustion for drivers after a long day or a long drive through the night. Stay alert to reduce the chances of drifting into sleep while steering. Also watch out for vehicles drifting unnecessarily outside their lane.''

A friend of mine use to drive rental vehicles from La Paz back to San Diego. It usually took him about 18 hours. He said the key to staying awake was to not eat anything except something simple like an apple or orange.
