My most memorable ones:
Spokane, WA to Kaycee, WY, driving a packed cargo van towing a trailer.

Ashland, OR to Riverside, CA, then working a 8 hour shift immediately after arrival.

Recently, I drove a little over 1500 miles (Windsor, NC to San Antonio, TX) in 23 hours. It took me two days to get there but I wanted to avoid the ice storm that was coming (1/28/14). I drove non-stop except for gas, lunch, and dinner break.

About 1,000 miles when I drove from Los Angeles to Chicago. That was about a 2,000 mile trip, Denver was the halfway point at about 1,000 miles. Could've drove further the first day but figured it was going to take 2 days anyway so why push it.

Left Los Angeles at 5:00am on Sunday morning and got into Chicago at 9:00pm on Monday night. Keep in mind that going east, I also lost 2 hours.

Mattoon IL to Bridgeport CT -- just under 1,000 miles -- and then back again 2 days later. Probably wouldn't ever do that again. The trip there was OK, but on the return trip the novelty of power-roadtripping wore off very quickly.

While it is a very beautifull drive, if you run I 40, I 44 it is excactly the same miles. Drive a semi for a living and I 70 in Utah and CO is tough with a full load.

With a truck, left Indy at 11 pm, south of Flagstaff 26 hours later..... This was many years ago, now it bed time at 10 pm....

One day? Houston to Tucson AZ. 1100 miles. 6 am to midnight Houston time. I-10 all the way. Also did Moab UT to Columbia MO, 1,070 miles all on I-70, but I split that one in two. Those are NOT interesting drives, but they are simple.
