Seattle, Washington to Coldwater, Michigan and back in just 4 days and some change. Left Thursday evening just before 8pm and got back at 1am the following Tuesday. I think it was about 4800 miles

Exactly. Tema's a force of nature...you can never totally tame Tema. Just be glad he's on your side.

3,600 miles in 6 days from St. Louis to Amarillo, Flagstaff, Las Vegas, Vail (Colorado), then straight down the middle of Colorado and back east to to St. Louis. Lots of driving in between, too.

Sorta. He opposed direct colonialism, which is great, but he did little to oppose neocolonialism. I don't have any vendetta against him, but I'm a big fan of the early years of the 1974 revolution.

All at once stopping for nothing but food and gas? Either some small town that I forgot the name of in North Dakota to Dallas or Atlanta to Dallas.

Longest two week trip was one that started and ended in Houston and included both Monterrey and Calgary.

One summer while in college my boyfriend and I drove from River Falls, Wisconsin to Seattle, down the Oregon Coast, to San Francisco, to Lake Tahoe, then back to River Falls, Wisconsin.

We camped when we needed to rest and stopped and explored some. It was two weeks of driving and seeing the landscape.

In one continuous trip, probably from Kansas City to the Washington Coast, to Sault Ste Marie, back to Kansas City. We do almost 5,000 miles round trip most years on our road trip to the wastelands and back, but take a few days break to visit while there. We rarely do more than about 800 miles in one day, like from here in the hills east of Tacoma to San Francisco.

One continuous trip in a car - New York City to Portland OR (~2900 mi).

One continuous trip in a drive-away rental truck - slightly longer, San Francisco to New York City, with a few deviations to drop people off along the way (~3000).

My longest trip, but with stays of a few days each along the way - San Francisco south along the western coast of Mexico (not Baja), cutting across to Mexico City, then along the Gulf Coast to Progresso at the north end of Yucatan (~3060). (The car didn’t come back with us.)

All distances estimated, but not all that different in length, really.

Vacation with family from Chicago to Los Angeles to near San Francisco heading back east to Rapid City, South Dakota back to Chicago. That trip took about a month.

Longest personally was driving the southern route to the Grand Canyon and back. That took just over a week. It was my honeymoon for my first marriage.
