Taking a trip with "Brake Pads At Minimum"

I'm supposed to be going back to orlando tonight but my cars going to be in the shop till next week, i'm thinking about taking my moms x5 but the "brake pads are at a minimum" light came on and i'm wondering if i'll make it there and back without any problems. Around a 300 mile round trip with a little bit of driving around for a few days there.

The sensor just shows the life of the front left and rear right, so the front right and rear left could possibly have more or less. I heard when the light pops up, it could last you 500-2500 miles depending how aggressive of a driver you are. It's your call. I wish you the best of luck!
