We go either 200-250 miles or about a 1-1/2 tanks of gas. Being retired sure makes travel a lot less stressful with respect to time. We just set a day we need to get there, divide the miles by 250 and get the answer in days.
When towing, we stick to 60-65 maximum. Every once in a while, I try driving by foot and find myself drifting up above that
. Cruise control is the only way I go slow enough!
I claim we'll only drive 250 miles, but we typically end up at 350-400 miles and a grouchy family to go along with it for longer trips.
