My friend and I drove from Eastern Utah to Boston in one go. Around 2600 miles. Took us about 1 full day and then another 15 hours in the next day or so.

Before that, Houston to Huntsville, Alabama 13 hours on nothing but a 12-pack of Mountain Dew and some good tunes back when I was 18.

I make a trip from Cali to Nebraska (>1500 miles) four or five times a year, straight through each time there and back, anywhere from 21 to 24 hours one way. You guys are pansies. After the sixth hour, it's just a controlled nap, and nothing to write home about.

Books on tape rock too. I wish the big chain book stores carried more English classics though.

Atlanta, GA to north Arkansas. Used to do this a couple times a year. No big deal, except I would do it after work through the night, and for a couple years my stay-awake was LSD.

Lights.... pretty..... stop in Mississippi to look at the stars.... what? oh yeah, time to drive....

13 hours: FT Lauderdale to Atlanta (w/ the help of a 30mg Adderall XR)

I would never do it again. But I probably could have gone at least 3 more hours.

Drove from Chicago to Vegas in the middle of winter. We thought we would be "smart" about it and take the southern route through texas, new mexico, and arizona to avoid all the snow. There was an ice storm from the texas/oklahoma border all the way to flagstaff. My driving buddy took my car off an embankment in texas. Fortunately, the car was fine and a texas dept of transportation truck came by shortly after and pulled us off the side of the hill we were stuck on. It took us 33 hours. In arizona, I was hallucinating and thought the reflectors on the side of the road where little people with backpacks. 33 hours doesn't seem like much, but we left after work, so we were awake for much longer.

On the way home, we said f' it and went through colorado, which is much more direct. It took 26 hours, even though it snowed all the way through the rockies.
