Just shy of 800 miles. Was first big trip. Salt lake to bend oregon. Took about 14 hours with Dw and 3 kids. Found out I need new seats before I try that again. I think I shrunk about 3 inches on the trip

Orlando to Topsail State Park is a tad over 400 miles and should have been about 6-1/2 hours. But some bozo decided to have a shoot out with FHP on I-75 which resulted in almost 8 hours stuck on the highway with nowhere to pull off. Ended up getting in around midnight and had to find my campsite on my own. At least it wasn't raining

I get the road urge and plan my trips. Stock up on everything the day before. I'm in no hurry to get there now that I'm retired. Max driving I do in any one day now is 400 miles with breaks along the way to enjoy the sites, places, people plus rest. I'll get there eventually. Lol, I haven't even gotten out of Texas yet. Just to much to see along the way. Just one day at a time now. Be safe out there.

12 hours. Not sure how many miles that was. It was a long day. I try to max out at 8-10, but everything was going fine and I felt fine even at the end.

Not even going to think of doing hundreds of miles in a day. I hope most people buy these toys to have fun in. Stop and "Smell the roses". Have
some fun in life it is so short. Don't get to the end of your time and say " I wish I had of" smelled the roses. They are pretty when you stop and look at them.

Solo in a car was from Duluth, MN to Lakeland, FL in a single drive. That would kill me today, ha ha.

In the RV we drove from Milford, MI to Ringgold, GA trying to get below the freeze line last winter. It worked but it was a long day.

While not as far as others. We drove from St Louis, IL to Milford, MI this spring. Little over 500 miles. I have done this trip many times with no ill effects. But with orange barrels and closed roads. Trip took 12 hours. Great to be home after 5 months. But it took several days to recover.
