When I was in college, I made a day trip to Chicago, which was about 2-3 hours each way. Now, I probably would say 2 hours max. (maybe even less)

About 4 hours.

I regularly make medical day trips to the Twin Cities (about 2.5 hours or 150 miles, about 305 miles RT doing all the running I do there), and that isn't too bad.

I do like freeway driving - just set the cruise control and look out the window. I've actually been able to "hold" cruise control for over 100 miles on the route.

I'll drive up to 3.5 hours one way. But it has to be worthwhile.
2.5 is easy; 3.5 is my max.

Just dove 5.5 hours one way (11 hrs round trip) and only spent 3 hrs before my return trip home. I'm sure I could do more but I wouldn't want to push it.

This should have been a poll.


Put me down for maybe 4 hours.
