Distance time map?

Wasnít sure how to label this. Is there an ap out there that you can put in distance from where your at to how far you can travel? Thinking overnight stops. Letís say I want to travel 300 miles from Boston on my way to Denver. Whereís that get me?

Although it is a subscription service I use RV Trip Wizard. I set my daily travel distance at 300 miles and it will give me a 360 degree view of point position and that distance. When planning it will calculate the numbers of days for travel based on the number of miles per day.

Not sure if that is what you are looking for but it serves my purpose.

I enjoy figuring all of that stuff out the old-fashioned way...

I let my Missus tell me when she's ready to stop!

Perfect. There are so many. I'll check it out.

You can also use something like MapDevelopers.com https://www.mapdevelopers.com/draw-circle-tool.php
In this example I ask for a circle of 100 miles around Black Mountain NC. You can then see the major cities at the edge of the circle.

I just use good 'ol google maps, on my phone or laptop.... find a point in the direction you are thinking of traveling, click on it, click on 'directions', and it will tell you how 'far' or how much 'time' it thinks it will take you to arrive there.... if that's too far, repoint to a closer place on the map - you're only looking for a general idea, anyway.

Google maps will also show you campgrounds and rv parks in that region by simply typing 'campground' in the search bar while you are showing the area you want to land in...
zooming in often reveals even more rv parks and camping options...including links to their phone numbers, website, and you can change to satellite view to zoom in and 'see' the overview of the facility or location...
It's difficult to do all of that, easily, on most any other app or software.

You can do all of this 'on the go', even without a laptop or computer, if you have a smartphone, and simply use the google maps app.

With the right music playing: I could drive all the way to Mars on a single thermos of coffee...
