Borger, TX to Richmond, VA. Took 2 days to get there, didn't drive it straight or anything of course.

When I moved to Florida for the 2nd time, I drove by myself (non-stop except for gas & food) from upstate NY to Central Florida. Not sure of the mileage but it took 21-22 hours. ;-D

I've done Cincinnati or Bowling Green, OH, to Florida many times. Longest though is Costa Mesa, California (just south of Los Angeles) to Indianapolis. Over 2k miles, over 30 hours, did the return trip straight through by myself. I looked like skeletor when I arrived due to all the water loss from the diuretic effects of caffeine.

I rode in the back of a truck with my cousin and an 75-80lb lab in between us (tight fit) for 25 straight hours only stopping for gas and food. We were coming back from Ocracoke Island and we couldn't catch the ferry on the way back, so we had to drive out, which takes a few hours longer...uggh, it's making me sweat just thinking about it. %-6
