Traveling to Gettysburg

SW10 is gonna be more than a day trip for me.
How many travel days do those of us who have to go cross-continent
.....expect to use getting to & from the battlefields of PA ?

anybody thinking of a 'left to right gypsy tour' ?
........ one can never start thinking about the next SW too early

2 days if you don't mind pain. 3 you can do it comfortably.

PA is about the same distance as it was getting from katy, TX to Deadwood. The first day we did 400 miles (9 hrs), 2nd day we did 5xx miles (10 hrs) and 3rd day arriving 400 miles (9 hrs again). On the way back home we split 1400 miles over 2 days.

For PA, I'm planning on taking 16 days off from work.

I typically "budget" for 500mi/day, and Google says 890mi to Gettysburg, so 2 days.

16 days off?! I hope you don't plan on spending them all in PA. It's not that exciting a state. lol

It is about 2500 miles for me. I have been going back and forth on what I want to do. When the time gets closer if someone has a planned ride maybe I can tag along.

About 850 from here .. Depends on who is with me , I do 600 a day without a thought .. So day and a half or less in perfect conditions , two full days will be more likely if I hook up with someone ..
