I'm going to an Army Reunion in late April/early May in Branson, MO. It will only be for four nights but I'm going to take a week to get there and a week to return. I'll be gone a total of 18 days and will travel just over 4,000 miles roundtrip. My daily average traveling will be just under 300 miles so I plan on driving about six hours each day. That allows me about ten hours a day to see the sights. I don't plan ahead where I am going to stay and often choose at the very last moment. I won't be camping and state parks are not all that desirable to just park for the night. More to my liking is truck stops, rest areas and Walmart parking lots. I've traveled like this for months at a time so a short 18 day adventure won't take much planning.
