You're coming from ~Alexandria so add a day, play the current both days otherwise you have no choice but to fight it for at least part."
We agree then. March weather sucks.

Lucky to get 3 good days in a row.

If he can get to the Potomac Mouth in 2 days and get good weather., he could make Deal in one long 50 mile day. Solomon’s is only a duck in place.

I suggested St Mary’s or Smith Creek as both are easy to find a place out of the wind in a dying afternoon sun.

Being realistic 3-4 days if no issues and good wealthier.
4 -5 days , planning for contingencies.
