San Francisco to Lincoln. 1,600 miles, nonstop. Took about 18 hours. It was OK, except we ran through a mini blizzard on the front range coming down in Wyoming. Aside from that 50 miles of crap, the rest of the drive was pretty cool.

Coming over the Sierra Nevadas at about midnight, we hit a pretty high pass with no trees, and there were so many stars it looked like the whole sky was full of them. Incredible.

I've never driven more than maybe 9 or 10 hours at a time. Eugene OR. to Stockton CA. takes about 8 hours...I've done it in 7 though. :-D

The longest road trip I've driven was a few months ago when I took my pops to Alabama from here in California. It took 4 days starting from Stockton CA. to Flagstaff AZ. to Amarillo TX. to Conway AK. and ending in Huntsville AL. ;-D

The longest road trip I've ever been on was when I was 13, my pops and I traveled the US visited tons of family and saw 42 states ending at a family reunion, it took 2 and a half months. I won't bother listing them all, I can't remember them all off hand anyway, but I can pretty much guarantee I've been to all your home states or at least driven through them. B-)

Roughly 1,300 miles. Distance between Fort Worth, TX and Pittsburgh, PA. Made the drive 3 times. Took around 19 hours by car. One of the trips was in an overloaded U-Haul that was also towing a car, so that one took in the neighborhood of 26 straight hours of driving. X-I !+)

Maryland to California non-stop (except to get gas). And I had to avoid Utah, so I couldn't take the shortest route. Fifty-four hours straight.

Yes, actually. Well, not anymore, but I was at the time.
