For the first few years, we did drive there (taking a car ferry to France.)
Of course now you can use the Channel Tunnel - so it's certainly possible to sit in a car for the whole journey.
Isosleepy's location is in Pittsburgh. People ask him if he drove there from the Netherlands. So, yes, that is a rather silly question, until that trans-Atlantic highway ever gets built.
