Where's the farthest road trip that you've driven?



I've done TO-SoCal a few summers ago. Ave. driving time 13hrs /day then we check in. Eat, have a couple of beers then hit the sack. The following morning we made a quick breaky at a local McD then drive again. Weeeee!


I'd like to do TO-Vancouver someday.

my longest roadtrip so far was from TO-st.petes, florida!!!

one place that i strongly recommend to go to is savana georgia you can drink beer on the streets and the chicken is the best you'll ever have plus it has a helluvalot of history.

Back in 1993 (I was 19) my friend and I drove 2 days straight to Monterrey Mexico. The first day I drove 18hrs straight to Little Rock, Arkansas. The second day was 13hrs to Monterrey. From there we flew to Puerto Vallarta. I have relatives in Mexico.

Every year I go to the NOPI nationals. We drive to Philly and meet up with the Super Street Tour and continue with 700 other sport compact cars for a 2 day cruise to Atlanta GA.... talk about something close to the Gumball 3000.... cops galore!

Farthest I've ever gone on a road trip with my family (not me driving) was when I was 10, we went down to florida, daytona beach.. etc.

Farthest I've ever personally drove was Cincinnati, Ohio.
