Ive done Louisville to Philly and Louisville to Charlston, SC in the last month alone--12 hours each.
Im good for 8 hours, after that, its torture in a car.
Ive road tripped from Vermont to Florida and many other really long ones. A few things I do now -- Rent a nice car rather than suffer the junkers that sit in the back of my driveway, and try--its hard-- to limit coffee intake. After a while, all that coffee really makes me feel bad. I like motorcycle riding better, but sometimes there just isnt a reasonable way to go in the amount of time allotted. I mean, I-95 really, really is undesirable on two wheels
Some of my greatest memories come from spontaneous craziness on road trips. Lots of fun, always look forward to them.

That's roughly about 600 miles, I guess. Way more than I would ever drive in one day. But for the sake of argument, I could go as far as:

Almost to Denver, Colorado
Dallas Texas
New Orleans, Louisiana
Chicago
Nashville
I could even get to the Panhandle of Florida *if* I exceeded the speed limit a bit here and there.
