I agree ~~ why pack up to drive only 2 - 3 hours? I'm older now (69) so prefer driving 8 - 10 hours unless destination is within 12. Usually stop every 2 - 3 hours for fuel, eat, walk the dog, etc so surely not overtired in 10 hours. If snow ~ that can make a difference.

IO will have a couple 2 and 3 hour trips. We went from Ashland New Hampshire to Portland Maine then short trip to Boston. Then we will have a long drive to Philadelphia Pa. Spending at least 3 full days because we may never make it back and want to experience as much as we can.

We have found on a long road trip that six hours is perfect. This means you are not in a rush to leave in the morning and you arrive in time to set up camp and make dinner.

When we drive to Florida the trailer is winterized so we do two twelve hour days, stay at Walmarts, eat out for dinner and arrive in Florida at our park around mid day.
