Did 688 in a 12 hour day on our quest to get to Tucson. Way too many in a day!

644 in one day on our last trip. That's about as far as I'd ever want.

"Good Lord Willing"

Well, the creeks rose! We left home on May 27 around 1:30 pm and headed South on Hwy 59/69 for a long weekend in Matagorda Bay. This was our second trip in our NTU Monaco. We were 90 miles in when traffic stopped dead. It had been raining since we left. Traffic started inching forward just enough that I had to go back and forth from accelerator to brake. After a couple of hours or more of this the word came back that the highway had been closed by Txdot. We turned around, drove 30 miles north to Livingston, Tx., west 45 miles to Huntsville, Tx., then headed back south on I-45 through Houston and got as far as Angleton, Tx. I was ready for a time out. Seven+ hours to go 275 miles. Wouldn't have been a problem even a few years ago, but age has taken a toll. My boney butt was aching. Pulled into a truck stop and slept 8. Made the last 65 miles and enjoyed 2 days of beach and sunshine. Trip back was fine. I've done some marathon trips in my life (800 miles KC to Albuquerque) but this might have been the toughest. I do love driving my MH though, looking forward to the next trip in July.

In our motorhome I've done ~850 miles driving solo, took ~14 hours

Driving my car I've done +1300 miles solo back in 1980 which took ~22 hours and then did ~1050 miles in 2012 taking about 15 hours.

I guess I was born to drive.

Nope, see no need to rush into it, we get up have breakfast, brake everything down, stop again with plenty light lift so we can enjoy where we are. Oh don't get me wrong, I did my time traveling the distance, but getting too old for that now. Don't like driving at night anymore unless I have to.

That is too much like work. We limit our driving to 5 hrs at the most per day, and that isn't very often. We enjoy taking our time, and taking it all in....

Did 947 miles on my Harley one time. Older and smarter now. Llimit the Mh drive to 200 miles usually, have done 300, but don't like it. I'm retired, why would I want to push it. Take your time, enjoy the drive and scenery, smell the roses along the way, and have plenty of time to hoist a cold one when the sun drops below the yardarm.

So if you mean 14 hours total, that means you averaged 60.7 mph including food, meal, bladder relief, fuel rest breaks.

Here is our video from spring break, it is Denver to FL in two ~900 hops. We do the Denver to Disneyworld drive over a weekend 2 or 3 times a year.

Just did Moab to Oceanside, Ca. 800 miles or so, way to much. It was 114 degrees in Moab and 75 in Oceanside, just to hot, RV struggled to stay cool, great vacation, but no place like home.

November 1969 drove from Anchorage Alaska to Denton Texas in 4 days and 2 hours 1963 Chevy 4 door 6 cylinder with co driver. Only stops were for gas. It would kill me to do that now.

What is the farthest you have driven in one day.

Not one day but when we returned early from Alaska, due to my wife's best friend entering hospice care, we drove 4400 miles in 8 1/2 days. Dry camped every night. In our full timing coach with toad.
