11 hours in one day is a lot. I try to stop and smell the roses now that I am no longer a spring rooster. I remember when I would do 1000 miles a day on a motorcycle. Those days are long gone. I still ride my motorcycle but now I stop along the way with the motorcycle or the car or the motor home.
I have found out the roses have a very sweet smell if you take the time to open up your nose.

I am kind of with Larry. We start out going slow and smelling stuff along the way but when we get within a day of home (either way south or north) the last day seems to expand. No use stopping a couple hours from home. Sort of horse and barn attitude.

Yeah, 11 hours is too much for me. Usually 5 or 6 is enough. MH drives easy but fatigue is still a factor, especially when you are not used to a schedule like that.

The longest part of the drive was across Alabama and they have some really good rest stops and most even have dump stations so it was really tempting to stop. We were trying to beat the rain and sunset. We beat the rain by 5 minutes but lost to sunset by about 45 minutes.

May we peugeot your renault? And, how far will your escargot, eh, Brigitte Bardot? (The "eh" part is Canadian.)
Hows that for a little French-Canadian?

Let me translate this for y'all. Giancarlo says he stops a lot more now so he can pee!

Gotta take a trip without the MH. Didn't remember what a PIA it is to pack a suitcase and toiletries...
Found this list that may help some...

Gather your clothes. ...
Roll your clothes. ...
Place folded items on top. ...
Drape longer pieces like pants and skirts. ...
Add smaller items. ...
Line suitcase with belts. ...
Choose shoes wisely. ...
Pack your jewelry...

One more reason to have a MH or some type of RV.

Packing is really not that hard, just stuff everything in a duffel bag and let the wife iron everything when you arrive.
But having 2 of everything when you have an R. V. IS EXPENSIVE but worth it. When ever my wife irons my clothes for dinner I get Hot tounge and could shoulder
