Feature Request - add columns for cumulative trip time

If any RV Trip Wizard programmers are reading this forum...

I would find it very helpful if the "Trip Details" section had an additional column for cumulative trip time shown in days, hours and minutes. This cumulative time would the time from any selected "Stop" to another "Stop". It could be from trip start (Stop 1) to trip end (Stop 10) or any combination in between (Stops 2 to 6, and Stops 7 to 10, etc.).

For example show the total time from Stop 1 (Home) to Stop 5 (the first campsite) with all the stops in between (Rest Stop, Fueling, Dinner stop, etc.) which are just an hour or two per stop. The program would also need to allow one to enter the Stop time (in hours and minutes) rather than just overnight stays.

Reason is that it would help keep one on time if you know you need to be at the campsite (Stop 5) by 6 PM, having the cumulative times[B] would allow one to work backwards to see what the best departing time is to make the destination on time [/B from Home (Stop 1) and then if there are traffic delays or such, then one could shorten or eliminate one of the in-between stops - like skipping a rest stop or shorten a Rest Stop from the 2 hours planned, to one hour to ensure one gets to the destination on time (i.e. where destination may have a closing time).
