Google Maps won't tell you this, but during the last 2+ hours of the drive you will be driving only 40mph to cope with the hills, the windy turns, and the cows in the road. You might have to smush a rabbit or two (it's safer, sadly) but you'll want to be able to stop for the cows.
i.e., unless one of you is able to sleep quite a while while the other drives, consider driving 8-10 hours your first day and budgeting for a motel in Central/SE Oregon. Especially on the way back, when you're probably going to be really tired.
