So how long will it take to get there?

Driving times: how long will it take to get there?

We all wonder this when we are heading out to go hiking so wouldn't it be great if we could keep track of this information in a centralized location that we can all reference? To further this cause it would be great if you could keep track of where you started, where you stopped, and the time it takes for you to get there. Over time, and if we all contribute, then we will have a very complete list.
