Hi Jeremy--
Early Sunday am is the best time in many locations. I'd suggest 1/2-2 
miles from a county trunk road, 2-6 miles from a two lane State 
Highway and 8-20 miles from an Interstate Highway. You'll get more 
distant sound abatement in locations within valleys or depressions 
which open away from roads/towns/factories and navigable rivers. You 
can check air traffic flight paths too:
