    It was to the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska,  about 6600 miles round trip from our home. Awesome trip - loved the scenery and wildlife.

    Around Australia... about 34,000kms covered in total over 7 months. Also from Vancouver Canada to Acapulco Mexico via California, Arizona and back via Louisiana and Chicago... don't know how far that is but it is a long way.

    It was here in Ireland and a few of us went on a 3 days trip. We went to Galway, Cork and then Clare. Not sure how much distance we covered but it would be 4-5 hours trip from Galway to Cork and then another 1-2 hours againg to get to Clare from Cork. But we stopped and had homemade picnics along the way, it was fun time.

    Anchorage, Alaska through Canada to Illinois, on to Georgia, then to Texas and stopping in California.  Had to be close to 6500 miles total.  It was a lot of fun!

    It was a cross-country trip from Tacoma, Washington to central New Jersey. At the time, we lived in WA and drove three days to visit family during the summer. A few days later we turned around and headed back home. Now I live New Jersey, so no more cross-country trips...at least to visit family.

    well, it was 5 years ago, I was just 21 and me and my girlfriend planned to go on a one-month trip in Spain and Portugal, just with a rucksack and a map. We had the opportunity to discover many places we didn't know, like Granada in Andalucia or Sintra in Portugal which have instantly become our favorites.
    It was tiring at times to search for hostels and bed and breakfasts without booking, but we definitely made the time in an astonishing corner of Europe.

    Well unfortunately, the longest trip I took was from Los Angeles, California to Sacremento, California. Because we went by car.

    When I was younger my family and I lived in Erie Pennsylvania. Most of the time when we would go on family vacations it would be to places where we could drive to see our extended family members - Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, etc.

    I don't remember the longest trip, but I know there a few 12/13 hour drives in there.
    Although, now that I think about it they all seemed really, really long since my younger brother would stop at nothing to pester my little sister and I!

    My longest trips were moving from Mass. to Nebraska (and back).  First time I took a northern route via I-90 and I-80.  Went through New York State, visited Niagara Falls, spent a night in Ohio, drove through Ohio, Indiana, Illinois etc. spent about half a day in Chicago, then finished on to Omaha via Iowa.  When I moved back east, we took a southern route through Missouri, Southern Ohio, the WV panhandle, Pennsylvania, New Jersey then back into New England - included stops for a Carindals game in St. Louis, Hershey Park and Amish country.
