we drove 12 hours the first day because of Thanksgiving traffic around Harrisburg, PA; this held us up for about 2 hours going about 10mph -arg. But we made it about 500 miles to Staunton, Virginia with 2 dogs, a stuffed car and 6 boats in tow. We got a lot of stares at all of my dad's lovely handmade boats during our travels. Obviously, we have wireless internet at our dog-friendly motel! We are about to head off for another 500 miles, another 10 or 12 hours to outside of Savannah, GA. The last day of driving will hopefully be the easiest with 400 miles . . .
