My longest drive was an occasional 502 miles trip from Pompey to "somewhere in Scotland" when I was serving in the Royal Navy.

As a biker, I did the Lands End to John o' Groats (and back) challenge. We went two-up on a 500cc super-scooter, endeavouring NOT to use M-ways at all if we could help it. I depended on Geraldine (my trusty Garmin GPS) and we traveled 2088 miles overall and were on the road for a total of 39.5 hours (I kept a log). We took our time and limited the daily legs to no more than about 300 miles at a time so we could enjoy the scenery and the lovely Scottish roads (more or less traffic free!).

It rained every day. :ph34r:

The furthest i've driven is from Skipton to Woolacombe, via Silverstone and Uxbridge...and back...was about 600 miles in total i think..possibly more.
When i was younger though, we used to go on holiday to Italy and my dad drove there are back 3 times, it was a good experience, but this was before the days of aircon..so it was hot!!!!
