    Default ease up

    Welcome to the RTA forum!

    My advice to you would be to simply ease up a bit. First of all, you are really really trying to fly through places here, but more importantly, when you are trying to plan a trip down to the hour and minute, you're going to have a trip where you are more focused on the clock than having fun. If you have a good trip, you'll have things that take you off schedule. Allow for this and don't try to schedule every second of every day, even on a short trip like this.
