My old thigh muscles limited me to about 150 a day. If the rig had better seats than those awful vinyl-covered Flexsteels it might have been more. I'd done 9+ hours a day as a transit coach driver for a few years without problems. Those coaches had very good seats with a wide range of adjustments and double-jointed telescopic steering columns.

The F53 set up was Neanderthal by comparison. It couldn't accommodate anyone that wasn't between 5' 7 and 6' tall. The seat wouldn't move far enough forward for DW to reach the pedals and the steering wheel would've been behind her ears if it would!

We have done 11 hours with two stops a few times although like you all said its not enjoyable. We try now to travel around 5 hours with two stops.

I take an aspirin every day while traveling, not a bad idea for those sitting more than 4 hours a day. We also lie down with legs elevated a few times a day for a 20 minute stop, because blood pools in the legs after a lot of hours.

We recently took a vacation trip from L.A. to Yellowstone National Park. Since we only had a week's worth of vacation, we made it a two-day journey each way. We left around 4:30 a.m.

The first day we drove a little over 500 miles to stay the first night at the Beaver (Utah) KOA. We stopped here and there (like at an Indian travel center in Nevada to pick up some fireworks). We got to Beaver at about 4:00 in the afternoon.

We reached West Yellowstone at about the same time in the afternoon (again, a shade over 500 miles). The drive went way better than I expected. Cruise control is a major help!

On heading back to L.A., I figure that we drove about 600 miles as we took an excursion through Grand Tetons National Park and we headed to Richfield, Utah so we can go through Zion National Park the next day during the last day's drive back home.
