depends on the destination....

If we are trying to get to Plattsburgh to drop off a trailer we will leave after work on Friday and drive through the night to be at Colin's around 10 am, we will talk for awhile (go over the trailers) and hit the road again to make it home early Sunday morning. We drive through the night when we are going to Disney as well- it is 15 hours and we can split that pretty easily. Again we leave after work on Friday and get in at lunch time on Saturday. If we are on vacation- specifically Airstreaming we will drive 200- 400 miles and enjoy the journey a little more. The dogs help to slow us down a little (they never all have to pee at once). This summer we are taking 3 weeks to go to International with friends and we are going to pound out 500 miles the first few days to make in to CO, then slow down to an average of 150- 250 miles a day after that- until SD where we will start pounding it out to get home. The best part is- if the road gets to you and you can't make it any farther just pull over and crash in the camper! Thats what it is all about anyway- your home away from home is always right behind you!

Usually drive a tank through the suburban (about 350 miles), fill up and start looking for a place to camp. Rest areas, Flying J, Wally world and the like. Getting there is not always half the fun.

A tankful seems to be a good guage for traveling distance. I figure we'll be doing about the same. We're going up to Dead Horse Point in Utah next month and we actually plan to break that trip up even though it's not that far. We'll stop in Durango for 2 nights, go up to Dead Horse for 4 nights then stop in Cortez (Mesa Verde) on the way back home. The most we'll travel in a day will be about 200 miles.

I noticed you're from Romulus. I got my first job out of college at the Seneca Army Depot (many years ago!)
