How long has something like Florida to California taken?

How many hours could you burn flying something like that route?
Going in next March in a 172N. Estimating from 60 to 70 hours due to some sightseeing, could be less (around 55 hours flight time) at 105 kts. This for California-Florida and back.

Do you have an idea of the cost of it yet?

How many hours a day are you intending to cover?

How long will you spend on the return journey?

Thanks

Rate is 105$/block hour wet for an IFR WAAS GPS C172N, could be less selecting another airplane.

Some days 2, some days 5, some days zero. I took 22 days off but again...I’m taking it easy. I’ll try to get to the East Coast in 5 days and then come back leaving space for chill out days/extra days for maintenance and/or weather.

Can I ask who you are using to rent the plane? I am interested in doing something like this later this year.
