Timandusan's post would be the most reasonable approach. Less stress in getting going in the morning and arrivals are early in the day for the next stop. All the factors of stopping distance, tire problems and fuel consumption are within reasonable aspects. Average 50 to 60 miles in distance per hour makes for a good day.
