Well, when I was young and stupid... about 1,300 miles (to see a girl over a 3 day weekend)... youth, coffee, and hormones... bad combination.

Now that I'm retired, 'till I get tired... usually about 6 hours in the MH is enough. I like to set-up in the daylight.

What sort of schedule do you use (leave time etc)? I'm looking at Grand Rapids, MI to Disney in the spring. About 1250 miles in two days should be a walk in the park.

For us "the destination is the journey". We are both fully retired and have the motorhome so we can continue seeing the country and on occasion share with kids/grandkids/great-grandkids. So my longest day is 420 miles and that was 120 miles over my normal max. It is rare for us to leave (on the days we are driving) much before 10 AM and even rarer to see us on the road after 5 PM. Driving at night is virtually off the table - too many critters moving around.

Now in my young and silly days I driven virtually non-stop for 2 days. No way now - simply not in that sort of a hurry.

So far 284 miles Santa Barbara to San Mateo, CA. Going to do ~305 miles Saturday from San Mateo to Weed, CA. As new to RV'ing and mostly limited to weekends the miles will remain short for now.

For several years our motorcycle club manned a checkpoint for the Alberta 2000. 2000 km (1250 miles) in 24 hours. There generally was about 50 participants.

The checkpoints were timed and participants got demerits for missing their assigned times, and got points for extra miles between the checkpoints.

The event no longer runs as the host club decided to discontinue their involvement.

Several of our motorcycle club members have done the Iron Butt (Mexico, US, Canada) sponsored by the SC Motorcycle Club. One of the guys had been on ten or eleven.
