When I drove from St. Louis to Southern Oregon last year (32 hours, 2,100 miles, 3 days... I'm insane) I would stop every couple hours or so. If Conker was asleep then I'd skip that stop unless I needed gas, food or something else, but if he was awake I'd stop. I had him on a 30 foot lead most of the time and would let him run around where we stopped for a good bit so he wouldn't get antsy in the Jeep. It was long and had some scary parts (it was winter, with snow, blowing sand, ice and all that) but we made it okay.
Just recently I drove from Southern Oregon to Phoenix Arizona. Well, I didn't drive, but it's still a long trip. Did the same thing with Conker as the last year trip. If he was asleep when we stopped I left him alone. If he were awake, even if he didn't need to go, I took him out and walked around a bit, played, let him sniff whatever he wanted and take his time. Both on the way down and back up I took him to a park and we ran around a LOT for about an hour and a half so wear him out a bit.
Good luck on your trip!
