I'm 70 now, so I know that 70 years old is time to cut back on my miles driven per day.
I have set my limit at 300 miles per day, no more ever in one day.At 75 that drops to 200 miles per day.
Please pass it along.

You are wise to know your own limitations and be willing to adjust as necessary. It is impossible to define parameters for travel based on age, though.

I am 67 years old and I think 300 miles per day is about 6 hours with stops/fuel etc. is enough at any time. The 10-12 hours towing was ok when working to cover limited vacation time but I am in no hurry now.

We like to do the 2X2X2 rule. 200 miles per day, arrive by 2:00 pm and stay at least 2 days. Ages 66 and 71.

OK. But what about the first day out when you might want to put on some real miles to go see some new territory?

I'm 73, and my driver duty-time limit is 12 hours. This includes stopping frequently for stretching and unkinking. We also stop for purpose of walking our two little dogs, and whatever else we deem necessary. I enjoy driving our motorhome, but we always make sure we get a good night's sleep. Our motorhome is quiet and comfortable.
