You could also move the steering wheel. Down or closer.
My arms get tired, and my ankles. If I am in the car a long time, I start to feel vibrations through the wheels. Hate it.
I think the most important thing when driving is to minimize the chance for fibro fog to hit. Little talking, Less eating/drinking/no phones. This is important, especially on longer rides.
For six years, we were doing a long-distance relationship, due to work. SO and I have been together for 13 years now. We split the driving, but it was still killer. Two years of 6 hours, both ways, plus an occasional weekend at the midpoint city, which was three hours each way.
Then, four years at anywhere from 2 1/2 to 4 hours each way, depending on the traffic on I-95.
In most ways I preferred the longer drive, because there was far less traffic, and the scenery was more attractive. Richmond to DC on 95 is ugly and with heavily traffic.
