In my earlier post I said the farthest I drove was from Aurora to Tempe but then I just read a few more posts and did from Houston, TX to Tempe, AZ in one day. Left at after 3:00 AM local time got in late back to Arizona. Long ass drive on I-10 but no problems at internal border checkpoints. Crazy that I've done these long ass trips.

Charlie.

I always though Colby looked like a cool little place to stop. I'm glad I found this out though, otherwise I would have been in for a shock.

1100 miles, in 22 hours. Kansas City to Raleigh. That's averaging 50 mph, including stops for gas and to let the dogs out. Was moving and had to get the dogs there.

1500 miles from n of Dallas to some rest county nj. Bought a new car in Dallas area, a diesel rabbit and had to drive straight back home to a party we were hosting set before I decided to buy the car. Needless to say I wasn't much of a host but all the guys wanted to see my new car! I was very young then and couldn't do it now nor would I. I saved $2000 on the car vs the dealer market up in nj and got a scarce vehicle in no during a gas shortage crisis in the 80's.

Completely by myself the farthest in one day was from College Station, TX to Tuscaloosa, AL at the end of last semester. About 650 miles and took almost 11 hours (including stops for food, gas etc). Set me up for a nice short drive the next day back home to Atlanta. Now, splitting driving duties with my dad we've done Georgia to Texas in one day several times. Over 850 miles and 15-16 hours. The longest drive I've ever experienced was before I was old enough to drive. Atlanta to Lincoln. A little over 1000 miles. Got delayed several times with wrecks and construction so it took much longer than it should have.

Few years back , I drove the wife and kids from San Antonio to Chicago straight, just stopping by for gas and coffee. Left SA at 10am, got to Chicago 10am the next day. Would never, ever do it again, even if I could.
