As full-timers, we aren't rushing. If we have a far-away destination, we like the 2-2-2 approach that we learned from other IRV2 posters -- travel around 200 miles in a day, get there by 2pm, stay at least 2 nights. Repeat until you get to your ultimate destination. In a few cases undesirable weather has popped up that made us really glad we didn't drive every day. We could leave a day sooner or delay our journey a day without affecting the whole travel plan.

We like to leave when the sun is up and sitting somewhere in plenty of time before the sun goes down. With doggies that have to go potty and fitting in lunch somewhere that eats up 8 hours pretty fast....about 400 miles.

If you keep your speed on Interstates or major highways around 60-65 mph, a good estimate would be that over a day's drive, you'll average about 50 mph, which will include fuel, food and rest stops.

We live in the Los Angeles area and any trip that takes us east or northeast leaves us with very few places to stop unless we do 400 plus miles. SO our first day is always a long drive which isn't so bad when you're fresh.

When working, we often did 500+ miles a day to make it to our boating/camping destination so we had a full week of boating.

Now that we're older/retired, 350 miles is about 7 hours of driving. We did Los Angeles to Washington D.C last year and averaged about 300 miles a day.

Remember, as you get older, you need to get up and walk around more often to prevent blood clots, sore backs and legs.
