If you're looking for something with a good amount of caffeine, consider
Mountain Dew. I would also recommend keeping some chewing gum on hand,
something very strong in flavor. If you're not used to making long drives
(I have made the drive from San Jose to Seattle a number of times since a
child ~ 14 hours) then take turns between napping and driving. Also give
yourself a chance to stop every 3-4 hours for about 10-15 minutes.

Another trick I learned when I get really tired and I'm on the final
stretch is to turn off the radio and start to sing to myself. I think
having to sing helps keep your mind alert as you have to think about the
words more than following along with a song on the radio.
