So my Saturday has freed up, and the weather is going to be perfect for me to go exploring. Usually I just pick a direction and go, but sometimes I like to look ahead and pick some spots out.
So I have spent like a day and a half worth of time at work devoted to planning a route. A new direction for me. Downside is that I had 27 locations to visit in the approximately 10? hours of usable light, and it would have taken two days, I can only commit one day.
I think sometimes though I enjoy the planning of the trip almost as much as the trip. Usually I just use google earth, this time I used a website that allowed me to drop "pins" at my locations, and would easily route between them. Each pin, or stop has an editable feature to it that allows you to put in the estimated time you will spend there. I think that is awesome. This is what made me realize I needed to cut some locations. So now I have 15 spots to visit, and trimmed about 85 miles from the trip.
So yeah, I do recommend this site right here ----> Click
The only downside is my buddy that I usually take these longer trips with is unavailable. Some of these places I would like to have a friend with me. Who is down for a road trip!
This is the information tab for each stop that you can edit.
