  • What's the farthest you've driven in a single stretch?

    About 5 years ago I drove solo from Portland Oregon to Anaheim California.
    Left at 4am.. arrived at 7pm.
    That's 15 hours straight with fast food/piss breaks only.
    1000 miles.

    You?

      Virginia to Florida and then back to Va in less than 48 hours. Drove down for a dog in a kill shelter I saw online.

      Was a spontaneous decision and she is by far the most chill, obedient and affectionate dog. It's like she has the soul of an abused child who realizes she's been rescued.

      Yes yes, we have some dogs up here, but dogs get adopted out ridiculous fast here. The shelter is a kill shelter too, but dogs only last about 4-5 days before they get adopted, ignoring the week the shelter holds them as unadoptable "lost pets". So there was no guilt for going so far.

      She looks like Ghost from GOT. Just smaller.

          About 900 miles. I think it took about 16 or 17 hours with food and piss stops.

          Georgia to PA. And then another 900 miles back the next day.

            Going out to Tehachapi, Ca for my GE Wind job. Hobbs, NM (East) at 7 AM-Palmdale, Ca. 9 PM whatever that distance is. Holy crap, I was cramping my entire body.

              My brother drove from Arizona to NC in one stop. But he had lots of cocaine and no need for sleep. Moron.

                    That's how I viewed the Florida dog adoption. Do something you wouldn't normally do. Just do it and realize you are making a unique memory a lot of people don't do.

                        I think I did 4-1/2 hours, with a couple of breaks. That's about my limit

                              The three that come to mind.
                              Winston Salem Nc. to my house, little over 1200 miles, took right at 24 hours with stops.

                              My house to DT's ranch in Texas, 14 hours.

                              Houston to my house, 13 hours.

                              Used to do round trips to Denver and back when I was trucking otr more times than I can remember. Those were 12 hours drive time.
