Leave yourself enough time to enjoy the destination. A least a couple of full days before you hit the road again. Relax when you get there! Don't forget this step...it's important! Just as important is leaving enough time to return without rushing. I usually add an hour extra (at least) for the return trip just so I am not pushing myself. Another stop on the way back to recharge MY batteries and a leisurely finish up on the last trip day takes care of the distance. Maybe one day I can just "light out for parts unknown" and forget about the time. I've seen RV clocks that are marked in DAYS rather than hours. I like that idea.
