My wife and I did this a couple of years ago. You have to balance your departure between the risk of hurricanes and the risk of winter. We left NJ in early October and the word we got from the locals on the way was that we were just before most of the snowbirds. We did kind of a forced march in in a month at 50 to 80 miles a day. That was way too short. I'd double it if we do it again but six months sems like way too long.
