How far can I go in a day?

Assuming good weather and other favorable conditions

  • Laying railroad (mountains and tunnels) – about 6 feet
  • Wagon, difficult terrain – About 5 miles
  • Laying railroad (flat ground) – 5-8 miles
  • On foot – about 10 miles
  • Wagon, flat good terrain – 15 miles
  • On horseback – about 20 miles
  • On a good horse, well fed and well cared for – about 40 miles

So, travel by wagon averaging 2mph is very good for a 7 hour day.
