    What's the farthest distance you've driven, and what did you think of it?

    Did you wish you had flown? Did you enjoy it 100%? Was there anything you would change?

    I drove for 3 hours and a half straight from Orlando to Jacksonville non stop. Man it was tiresome. I felt almost like I was gonna fell apart.

    My husband and I visited my grandma in Florida...it took us over 21 hours to get there and we drove it straight through. (Although he did most of the driving) It was VERY long, but I did still enjoy it, and I prefer it to flying so that I can take as much stuff with me as I want (which doesn't always end up being a good thing!) and I honestly just love road trips!

    We drove from Michigan to Portland Oregon.  If we would have flown we would have missed all the beautiful scenery along the way.

    I have driven from New York to Anchorage Alaska, with three children lol. It was okay, I have well mannered children and they were all at the time anyway easily entertained. We drove partial way there through the Yukon which was amazing and made a long long trip worth while.

    I love driving, especially when it's on the spur of the moment. The furthest I've driven was from Sydney to Perth in Australia ( a distance of about 4500km or 3000 miles) on more than one occasion,  on my own twice, and just loved the experience, the open road, changing scenery and meeting some strange characters along the way. I'm not all that keen on flying, or travelling on buses or trains for that matter, I'd rather the freedom of the car. The only thing I would change is probably the passenger.

    What's that old saying?  "It's more about the journey than the destination"...or something like that.  I love road trips and have been on plenty.  The longest one though, was probably from northeast Indiana to Key West, Florida.  4 of us stuffed into a Mustang, cruising 1500 miles driving straight through took about 24 hours.  Nothing better than the journey of driving from cold, gloomy winter, to near paradise.  Pretty uncomfortable and some quiet points in the car, but you really get to develop a bond with those you're with (if you don't kill them first), and see a ton of the country you would have missed by flying.  The drive back, on the other hand...I'd replace that with a flight ticket if I had the option.

    23 Hours, straight through it was brutal.  We were on all each others nerves.  To this day have not driven anywhere close to that time in one road session.

    I drove all the way from NYC to Montreal in Canada. Back then it was a College road trip. We had so much fun there and the annual trip became a tradition with my family.

    But trust me it is a long road, but going true the Vermont's mountains really helps to breaks the road monotony.

    I drove alone two years ago from Southern California to Salt Lake City and back, just spending one night there before coming back.  I only got my license the year before and my car isn't exactly reliable. A snow storm started on the way back and I was hysterically afraid that I would die. I could hardly see through the snow, and I passed a truck that had turned over shortly before my car did a 360 and ended up stuck in a pile of snow on the side of the freeway.
    Luckily, someone came to help shovel the snow out of my tires, only to show me that one of my tires was broken. I spent the early morning ours waiting for the car shop to open, so I could hurry up and get home.
    But for the most part, as long as you have radio you're set.
