I know we’ve said this before in this series but the speed limit on the Trace is 50 miles an hour. Stick to it. Stop often and enjoy. It is two lanes for all 440 miles with no passing lanes. Much of the time, unless you are near a busy community that adjoins the Parkway, yours will be the only vehicle you see. Set your cruise control and do just that… cruise.
You will be stopping a lot, anyway, so conquer that urge to rush right at the stop. The Trace is meant to be traveled slowly, with lots of stops. If you understand that at the start it will make the whole trip better.
