[DML] Re: Gettysburg Caravan - Indy Lunch Stop



To make a one day 500 mile trip will be very tiring on one driver.  
Depending on traffic this could take you 10 hours.  To do this on 
many consecutive days will really stress your body.  For me I would 
limit consecutive driving to 6 hours and use some rest time to enjoy 
the area I stay overnight.
