The encampments in the midbar

Is there a list of all the stops that Bnei Yisrael made after leaving Egypt (in chronological order), and how long they stayed in each place, especially one which lists different opinions about the lengths of stays? I vaguely recall seeing some sort of list but don't know where and haven't found one after looking.

There is a list in Bamidbar 33 of the places and transitions (they set out from X and camped at Y, they set out from Y and camped at Z, etc). This list doesn't say how long they stayed at each.

I once asked a question about the durations somewhere else, and received a partial answer that cites Seder Olam Rabbah 8-9 and Rashi on Bamidbar 14:1 and Devarim 1:46. The author of that answer, DonielF, added:

Seder Olam Rabbah only says that they spent 19 years in Kadesh and 19 years wandering between these places; I don't know of a source which provides a more detailed breakdown for these stops,

Like any library, this site offers tons of great information, but does not offer personalized, professional advice, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your rabbi.
