Huge family, in a station wagon, singing most of the way. I was the, "are we there yet?" child. Still dislike road trips. So thankful for planes.

Just got home from oklahoma today. Hopefully will be moving there this month

Several times. See, I live in Utah which means if I want to go somewhere besides the desert or Yellowstone, I have to drive at least 1,000 miles. Also, being from Utah, I have a huge family making it cheaper to drive than fly.

South Florida to Boston when I was 11. Al over California when I was 8. South Florida to Niagara Falls at 13. Through Germany & Austria at 15. I love that my parents took me everywhere!

I'm from Oregon and at age 6 we drove to Phoenix, at age 12 we drove to LA, and at age 14 we made a loop up to Calgary and down to Yellowstone. My mom & I also road-tripped moving me from Nashville to Oregon, and my dad and his best friend road-tripped my move to Phoenix recently.

My dad drove a semi-truck when I was a kid, so every summer and winter break was spent in the truck traveling the country with him. I honestly feel blessed to have had that opportunity. I'd seen 46 states by the time I was 12 and often got to see a side of places that tourists never see.

I live two miles from the Pacific went cross country to see our son in VA. Took the Oregon trail home. Went twice. Also visited our daughter in CO.

We regularly took trips to see family when I was growing up. Then I went to college out of state and that was one heck of a drive!! 18 hours in good weather. Far more in the winter!! 2 years ago we took the kids and an RV back for my 20th class reunion. BEST. FAMILY. TRIP. EVER!!!! Oregon coast.

Desert- I grew up out on that highway. It's a fabulous place to take a driving trip!!

Or a Chevy Lumina—a normal ass, mother****ing car that gets the mother****ing job done. Road trips are who you take with you, not the vehicle that you use.

07/08/12 10:23 pm

Not yet, but my family and I are about to travel from near Spokane, WA to Las Vegas, NV for a basketball tournament! Looking forward to it! I would much prefer to travel by car than by plane...

07/08/12 9:53 pm

I have driven to San Francisco, LA, Arizona and SF again to see my Padres on the road.

I think how long would long island, ny to Virginia be?

07/08/12 8:44 pm

Road trips are only fun if you have a great car. Like a Buick LaCrosse. That thing is built for road trips.

07/08/12 8:36 pm

No never a vacation but I have driven over 1000 miles. :0(

Such a trip would probably involve a plane.

I hate traveling long distance in both car and plane. farthest I ever traveled in a car was SC to NY (<1000). farthest trip ever was SC to South Australia. After a 38 hour trip (which included a 14.5 hour plane ride) I don't want to travel outside of SC for awhile now.... lol. I'm just not a traveli

@EarlyBird good one, they'd have to do multiple loops. The DOT reports 9523 lane miles in Hawaii (2008 data), but all the way around the big island the longest way can't be much more than 250 miles.

07/08/12 6:44 pm

Many, many times. About to head out for 1500 miles. To Canada fishing.

07/08/12 6:40 pm

Interesting about mission trips-- why not help those closer to home. Funny map!

07/08/12 6:30 pm

Does it count if we left my brother behind? If not were driving to Canada in two weeks so I'm not lying either way.

I noticed people from Hawaii don't take long road trips.

Paco - I, too, have traveled that far on a mission trip, but not for vacation. The mission trip was from AL to upstate NY.

Fl to Ga, exactly half 500 miles

07/08/12 5:21 pm

That sounds ideal Harvard. Would love to visit all of the National parks.

07/08/12 4:46 pm

Utah to Alaska, then California to north Carolina. Love me some road trips.

07/08/12 4:46 pm

My family drove with me from California to Cambridge, Massachusetts stopping by the national parks along the way. It was a memorable experience.

@PurpleAsh: Wow, I do believe you have me beat there.
