I'm about to take a 40 hour road trip across the country. How long was your longest road trip?

We just got back from one, actually. We drove Montana to NC in 46 hours.

Over how long a time? Often do like 50 hour road trips over 2 week time period

I would count that as a 50 hour road trip. Mine will be within 1 week.

9 hours, but with 2 small kids in the car it felt like an eternity.

I've made a few long distance road trips that took more than 40 hours to complete, I really enjoy traveling on the highway and seeing the country.

I drove from Seattle to Miami once. Took 9 days, but I went the very scenic route and stopped often.
Was a neat drive, but I did get a little lost in Memphis after getting off the interstate...

El Paso, Texas to Palmer, Alaska.... 4,000 miles. No big deal.

We didn't take the same way there and the same way back though (Seattle)

Fun!! I love road trips! My longest one has only been 19 hours...down to Orlando during my senior year in high school.

That was the longest trip I've ever taken till now. 26 hours down to Orlando from Wisconsin.

I'm not sure yet lol. I haven't taken enough long ones to decide whether or not I like them. This one is necessary just because I am driving my new car out to school.

We drove from NC to AZ in December. Enjoy your trip!

Nice! Where are you headed?

My longest trip was about 58 hours.

I'm headed from Wisconsin down to Phoenix to see my grandparents and then up to Utah to go back to school.

Yeah I've heard! So not excited for the heat. I'm a cold weather kind of girl.

At least it's dry heat. After 6 years in NC, we're all enjoying the dryness. Have a great trip!

Thank you! I actually like the humidity. It's been so much easier to breathe out here in Wisconsin than in Utah. It's probably just because that's what I'm used to.

Probably. What killed me going to school in UT wasn't the dryness, but the altitude. I'm kind of a sea level girl.

That could be it as well. My baking sucks in Utah cuz of the altitude lol still trying to figure that out.
