We haven't decided yet. Last year we alotted 3 hours for the 118.7 mile distance and it was quite comfortable for all. We had a mandatory stop at the halfway point [where we all had to pick up a card that proved you went the furthest distance from the start and didn't take any short cuts]. Many of us chatted there and looked over each other's cars. I really enjoyed that and spent about 10-15 minutes there. However it made me 3 minutes late getting back.

This year's event is a bit shorter at approx. 102 miles due to the location of the picnic afterwards. The roads are all 45- 55 mph and if I remember right, I think you can count the total number of traffic lights on one hand.
