    I wouldnt dare start out with that many miles. Maybe 2 miles would be ok. You don't want to come into any tying up or anything like that. Keep it short and sweet and build up on the miles over time.

    I would think of it like you running a marathon. Would you want to start out with a five mile walk when you've only been walking maybe a 1/2 mile? I don't know how far you have driven her but start slow and work up. Add maybe a mile or two every week.

    Don,t put a distance on take off and just use your own judgement as when to turn for home
