There is a KOA close to whytheville in Virginia, I did not see a two night minimum on their web site. If they do, we will stay at the Microtel Inn in princeton, WV.
We will be leaving at 5 am and according to my map software we should be in Whytheville area around 6 pm, which is a nice time. and I am very sure that if weather cooperates we will be able to make 6 o'clock nicely.
To be honest after driving 11 hours I will most probably prefer to stay at the Microtel inn to maximize my rest time
Depends on our tiredness level and mood I guess
I have tested the road speed setting of my map software with my typical actual timings and I always beat them or arrive very close to being just on time (I do not race with my timings lol). It gives me a sense of where I am in my schedule now that I was able to match my driving speed and projected arival timings and milestone points in my travel.
So far the route looks like this :
And arrive at destination !
