Did all that stuff years ago. Not trying to impress anyone, just going camping and enjoying what time we have left at a leisurely pace.

I tend to agree with OC's philosophy of slow down and enjoy the trip. There are times, however, when we're pulling out of the driveway at 4:30 when I get home from work and have a 2 hour trip to the campground. I've got 3 kids in the back seat that are going to be getting hungry at 6:00 or so and I don't want to try to find a place to eat on the road and then have to setup in the dark. With that being said, sometimes I NEED to get on down the road!!! I NEVER exceed 65mph or travel at unsafe speeds for any reason when towing, fyi.
