    How Many Miles?

    Thought I'd start a thread up to see who is going to be driving the most miles over Christmas.

    I figured out that not counting the extra few miles I might drive while at each location, I'll be logging approximately 982 miles starting tonight through the 26th. That's a trip from Des Moines to Ruthven, IA and back then one from Des Moines to Heyworth, IL and back so even if I drive an average of 10 miles more while at each location I'll easily top 1000 miles of driving in about 6 days.

    Zero - Christmas is at my house and I don't plan on leaving for anything but booze supplies and maybe a quick pheasant hunt (possibly both at the same time).

    We did 2200 miles over thanksgiving going from CO to DSM to Eastern Iowa back to DSM to look at houses and then back to CO. We'll do about the same for Xmas.

    I have about a 500 mile Iowa loop to complete on Christmas Day and the day after. Hope it doesn't get slippery.

    I usually drive all of it unless I get too tired, then I'll trade off. We have an 18 mo old too so the person not driving needs to entertain her. I'd rather drive.
