I drove 900 + miles to The Black Hills last year. I pushed the miles on the first day and ended up hitting a hotel around 10pm. It was worth it not to set up and just take off in the morning. And since the majority of the ride was done I had a fuller day at the campground. On the return I did the same but I wasn’t as lucky getting a cheap hotel. Due to the parking needs of a pop up in tow I ended up at a pricey hotel. Driving around at midnight I was pretty beat so I made sure I enjoyed the amenities there!
