Doing the trip in two days is certainly possible but comes with the equally-bad-if-not-outright-worse downside of staying the night in either Ohio or Western Pennsylvania.

>So far, Archer is not draining you too badly. You expect it's because she's not doing much of anything.
>You mentally prepare yourself, and call the Human Capital department at work. As expected, they are not happy with your request. They are definitely not happy that you can't give a definite time of return. But you'e made your decision, and really can't budge from there. They don't exactly agree to it, and they don't exactly not agree to it. It is a hazy non-answer to try to spook you into thinking they expect you come in like normal. Maybe they do? But chances are they'll be disappointed.

Archer may have better concealment in the wilderness than elsewhere, but surely us setting up a trailer on our lonesome is going to be a lot more conspicuous to any other Masters looking for us than blending into the crowd of other people at a motel or something would be?

A small trailer with Archer's expertise would let us hide something as insignificant as a car and trailer easily. Not like magi pay attention to modern amenities; however, money's money. Tent it is.
