Thank you Kelsey - this is so good. I didn't know I need to eat breakfast before travel far. I thought, it is fun to stop in the service area.

Now, folks, I give you a tip you all probably know anyway. If you go far this weekend and this "far place" is somewhere along busy routes - drive late in the evening. You will save time, gas, headache, etc. Of course, your car will break if it idles for 10 hours...

I know that my trips to Boston can take 6.5-7.5 hours during the day/morning. In the late hours - 5.3 hours. 5.5 with one stop.

Enjoy your weekend
