    12hr car drive to Atlanta, GA. I only stopped twice for gas and to use the restroom. I had been up for 33 hrs straight by the time I got there and then 5 days later, made the trek back home. It was worth it!!! :o)

    From Florida to Texas non- stop, except for gas and potty. We had food and drinks in the car. That was years ago, but a very long trip.

    One time I drove from San Jose, CA to Eugene, OR *non-stop.* My Dodge B250 (1 ton cargo van) had a 35 gallon tank and got over 20 MPG. That was a little over 600 miles and about 9-10 hours. Stopped at Eugene to fill up and then drove on into Salem.

    Other long trips that did involve stops along the way (rest stops and gas stops) some as a driver and some as a passenger:

    San Diego, CA to/from Salem, OR
    Alameda, CA to/from Salem, OR (several times)
    Denver, CO to/from Richland, WA
    Salem, OR to Pueblo, CO (two trucks w/trailers and a mini van; 4 drivers; 47 hours)
    San Diego, CA to/from Vegas
    Union City, CA to/from Vegas
    Union City, CA to/from Reno
    Norfolk, VA to Orlando, FL

    Let's see...
    South Carolina to Michigan, South Carolina to New York (bus ride, still somewhat unpleasant), South Carolina to Washington, DC (also somewhat unpleasant). God, I hate long car rides!

    It was a bus ride to New York with the band from Kentucky. Miserable bus ride but had a great time in between. New York is really fun when you've got good friends with you.

    From Gainesville GA, to Daytona FL.
    8 hours roughly, it was horrible.
  • TiffanyBelle 2012/05/05 22:02:29
    as a child: we drove from Los Angeles, CA to Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
    2700 miles. I was young so I'm uncertain about the details (did we stop to sleep somewhere or did my mom and step dad take turns and we drove straight through?).

    as an adult: from Santa Barbara, CA to Dallas, TX.
    1500 miles. This was in 2009. We took 3 days for that trip stopping for breaks to stretch, eat, sleep.

    I can handle road trips until about 1,000 miles... then it seems to take FOREVER and I always wish I had taken a plane instead.

    Maybe 5,000 miles from Raleigh, N.C. to Glacier Park in Montana and back. Actually more because we took all kinds of side trips on the way - St. Louis, Kansas City, Denver, Aspen. Most interesting bar was the Cowboy Bar in Jackson, Wyoming - it had actual saddles for bar stools! Loved seeing snow on the ground in July at Independence Pass, Colorado.
