+1. What Gif4445 said. It's not about the destination - it's about the journey.
I could fairly easily ride 100+ miles everyday, but I don't. I usually ride 50 to 75 per day and take time to meet and greet locals, walk around quaint towns, stop for pie, take plenty of photos, and stop for pie. I always take (at least) one day off the bike per week. I take time to hike the national parks, visit local museums and historical sites, wildlife preserves, etc. If the weather forecast is for all-day-rain, then I'll stay put and enjoy a good book (Kindle/Nook), poke around the campsite, walk around town, visit the library, etc. Of course, if I get caught in an afternoon shower, then that's just part of the journey! Anyway, you'll relish your trip much more if you aren't destination orientated, but instead, enjoy the journey one stroke of the pedals at a time.
Many safe journeys,
