Having ridden coast to coast and didn't worry so much about how far in a day, but how much I got to see in a day. There are places you will travel through that you just put a book on tape in the player and move on. Like previously stated if weather gets severe get off the road, normal rain just be careful, slow down a bit. Truckers like you and will keep you posted of hazards up coming and good places to eat. We prefer a nice motel, with a pool and preferably a good steak house near by. Just Go and Enjoy.
