Hmmmmm, the first 30 years of moho'ing I always followed this rule:
13 hours of hellish driving per day.
700 miles traveled per day.
2 shots of your fave liquor upon arrival at WM to calm nerves.
2 more shots after burgers, nerves still shot.
8 hours of sleep, after passing out.
I am so glad that I found this site and now know the real travel numbers. Still working on "The Journey is the Destination" thing, need more time to figure that one out. But the 2-2-2, or 3-3-3 (or the one that I probably follow the most is the 3-3-2 rule) really do make for a much, much better travel experience. My liquor store owner is a little mad, though, since I no longer need all the booze. . . . .
