Lots of influences at work depending on the situation:

Finishing a little earlier means more time to regroup before going back to work.
Save $ by one less night in a motel
Tire wearing a bit faster than planned, therefore a more direct/shorter return is in order.


I like to start a trip with a bullet trajectory and really push the miles because I'm excited to start my vacation. However, on my way back home, I'm not as motivated to get to where I'm going. This isn't always the case, but I like to plan (if I make plans at all, which is really the norm) to have more time for the return trip for just in case something comes up.
