How far in one day?

What is the farthest you guys have driven in one day? Gas or diesel?

Thanks, Leo

Furthest - probably 450-500 miles, current gas coach.
Typical - 200-300 miles

Over 1,000 miles on a trip that was a timer crunch. We would rather not do that many miles at once but with Thom is still working so we not retired. That was the in the RV.

Not in the RV I have driven from Jacksonville, FL to Buffalo, NY in just under 14 hours. I was not doing the driving and I did not look at the speed. Again it was a need to get someone place fast.

Just under 1200 miles in just under 24 hours driving from Oxford, Ohio, to Denver, Colorado. It wasn't very enjoyable. \ken

850 miles from Watson Lake Yukon to Fairbanks Alaska several years ago when I still had the 32 foot gas coach. Some of those are very tough miles due to permafrost heaves. Drove alone with DW supplying coffee etc. as I drove.

Retired and we fulltime. We made two promises to each other when we hit the road:
1. Never drive for more than four hours a day. Retired, no need to!
2. Never see a snowflake!
So far, so good.

Good to hear from someone who understands the old time definition of "retirement"

When we were working and had limited vacation time, I'd go about 900-1000 miles/day , if needed, in our gasser. Now, we go about 400 miles/day when we are traveling

We say on the road by 10am...on our second margarita by 3pm. Miles are irrelevant.
