When I was working it was a lot more then we drive now. Time was a lot more limited then so we really would push the envelope to get to our destination. To answer sometimes 10-12 hours. Now being retired it might 6 at best. If your going for a month sounds like you have some time to enjoy and see the sites. Just don't try to do and see everything, you won't enjoy the trip. I'm sure after being West you will surely want to return to explore more. We've been back many times and haven't even put a dent in the experience. Again have fun as I'm sure you will.

I believe how long, or how far you want to drive in one day is up to the individual. I love to drive, and if the daylight hours are long we'll be on the road shortly after dawn and in a CG for supper.

Travelling, in general, I would say with stops for breaks, fuel, etc. we average 50 mph. If I am traveling 8 hours on an interstate that gets me 400 miles.

What you choose may vary.

We just finished a 2100 mile trip ... we travelled about 350 miles on 3 of the days, 250 miles one day, and about 450 on two of the days ... the 350 mile days were easy ... we drove the 450 mile days in order to coordinate our arrival with others ... that was further than it was comfortable or leasurely..

We generally drive about 62 mph ... when you factor in refueling, bathroom stops, and lunch breaks we average about 50 mph for the day ...

Hopefully we will be leaving Mar. 1 for about two months. This will be our longest trip. We will be heading to the west coast with several stops on the way out.
We will not have an agenda, when it feels right we will stop or go.

We stayed inside the park with our 39" MH.. It was not the best CG we ever stayed at but was not that bad. If you see the lines trying to get into the park everyday, you will be glad your are staying inside the park. Also did the Palo Duro canyon and enjoyed the show at night. It does get hot at the bottom of the canyon even in early June. Need to go back to see the north rim at another time. Spent 4 nights in the park and then 3 nights at Williams which is on 66. They have great street entertainment every night downtown.
