Here is a superb web site for moonrise calculations

Right off, I'm not after the full moon. That takes place at midnight and I don't care.

No, the 100% full moon can take place at any hour of the day, since this is determined by the position between the sun, earth and moon.

The idea is to get a great moonrise with some light on the hills I have picked out. It's a hundred miles round trip so only one day.

Start with locations closer to your home?

Best time to take full moon pictures is at dawn or dusk, when the light from the moon balances with the light before sunrise or after sunset.

The web site is a great source for finding when moonrise/setting moon at your location (position in degrees, and time for passing the horizon).
