Longest drive with only me driving would be from NJ to Tennessee (900 miles) & my regular trip from NJ to Chicago(850 miles) that I do almost every 6 months now.

ATL to NYC (about 750 miles) and ATL to MIA... I've done ATL to MIA maybe 10 times.. About 660 miles and 9-11 hours depending on traffic.

All in a day?

I know Europe's max speeds and topography are much different, so that must have taken all day and night...

That's insane! I would have gone crazy with the monotony of driving with minimal rest breaks.

If your arms felt like that, I could only imagine how your butt felt.

When we were going cross country, our longest leg was Vegas to Denver. Google maps has it clocked at 750 miles. That...took a while

I can't imagine 200 years ago when these types of trips took three months...

Dude when I am in the woods I always am amazed to think people found their way on a horse with no phone and no google. Its bloody amazing.

How many times did people find out the hard way "oh **** don't go that way".

We drove about 600 miles from Barcelona to Marsielle, to Lyon. Wasn't that bad but paid about €100 in toll alone...

And by the time you reached your destination, half of your group was dead.

Google is amazing. Although the days of busting out the atlas and determining your route were kind of fun. In 06, my dad and I bought an RV in Macon, GA and drove it home to Utah. We didn't have a GPS unit, so we took our atlas with us. That was a fun road trip. Made it up to Memphis to see Graceland, etc. Did get lost in Little Rock, AR. Spent hours driving on tiny backroads in a torrential downpour.

1289 Miles, Houston to Greenville NC. 19 hrs, 7 minutes. I was actually attempting to drive to Norfolk VA nonstop, but went to sleep at the wheel and ran off the road - which woke me up. Not nearly so much a shock as seeing that 18 wheeler parked at the side of the road in my mirror. I'd run off the road just in front of him. I was trying to get back to my ship from leave, but misjudged the time. Still I pulled into a Greenville motel and got a few hours' sleep before finishing my journey. I made it back with only minutes to spare.

went from Charleston, SC to Stillwater PA, which according to Google Maps is 736 mi, 11h22m, but they don't factor in sitting in traffic trying to pass through Washington, DC.
and i had my 9 month old in the car, so factoring in stopping for food, gas, bathroom, and baby changing/feeding, it took us almost somewhere from 13-14 hours to get there
