The farthest I've ever "driven" in a day would be 1250 miles. Northampton, MA to Orlando, FL. Just over 19 hours straight.

Aspen, CO to Houston, TX - about 1,300 miles in 19 hours, not my smartest drive. Now I limit my road trips to 10-12 hours a day.

Columbus, OH to Colby, KS: about 1025 miles, 15+ hrs.
Summer of '95 doing our 5th coast to coast to coast motorcycle ride, with my fave bro-in-law.
We had always wanted to do a '1000 mile day' on our scoots...

We rolled into Colby, damn tired, copped a room at the Super 8, and asked the clerk where the closest bar and grill was, that hopefully we could walk to. She said, "about 60 miles west, in the next county, Colby is dry, Honey."

We could not get back on our scoots. We ate a Burger King, took a shower and went to bed.
GL, mD

The fact that there are still "dry counties" frightens me just a little LOL.. I lived in one many years ago in E. KY, and used to have to go to VA to get a beer. Odd.

I won't set any records: my longest one day drive is from Salinas, CA to Lake Havasu City, AZ to visit some relatives...about 520 miles. That desert stretch from Mojave to LHC makes it seem even longer than it really is!

Back in the 70's, I left Austin TX at 4am and rolled in to Muncie IN around 10:30pm, 1100 miles in 18 and a half hours. All because I didn't want to spend money for a motel room.

I will never do that again.

In 1972 I rode a Greyhound Bus from Denver to Indianapolis in 32 hours. I was wore out by the time I got to Indianapolis. Those 32 hours are the longest I ever been on the road, non-stop.
