Skyline Drive down and back

I'm looking at doing Skyline Drive, starting at Front Royal, going down to Waynesboro for an overnight, then back.

I'm looking at breaking up each trip with an overnight at either Skyland Lodge or Big Meadows. Wanting some input here though:

Initially I was looking at going 50 mi to Big Meadows, overnight, then to Waynesboro for an overnight, then back to Big Meadows. BM seemed like a decent stop cuz it's almost exactly 1/2 way.

However, I read at least one post that suggested doing the overnights at Skyland Lodge: even though it's only 40 mi from Front Royal, that's the most difficult climbing. The suggestion was that that would be the recommended 1/2-way point.

Any thoughts?
