San Jose to Tahoe and back to San Jose in the same day probably at least 50 times. 4 hours up, snowboard all day, 4 hours back if the weather was good. If a storm blew in during the day, it could sometimes take much longer to get down the mountain.

PA to Boston....not bad at all, it's over before you know it. As far as sleeping, haha that's one big negative for the car. I'm small and the back seat still doesn't even get close to being a comfy bed. Maybe if there was some company in the back

About 1300 miles, from Portland, OR to Novato, CA (a little north of SF) driving down 101 on the coast the entire way. From Novato down to Turlock, CA and from there straight up I5 back to Portland.
The coastal route was lots of fun, great scenery, and my brother was with me (whom I don't see much) and we had a great time hanging out.
The car ran like a dream, got to smoke a new BMW M6 through the twisties too.

My old 94 Leggy did FoCo to Pittsburg area. I eventually drove it coast to coast, though in stages. Next summer I plan to take a trip to the Tail of the Dragon, and then north east to New Hampshire, and back again.

It was alot of driving for week! I think I had put on about 7k miles in a 15 day period. Running around and seeing people I hadn't seen in years.

The STi with those tires plowed through anything though. The car was literally a snow plow at some points. I remember one spot where I had snow up to my hood and I had to drive like 5mph cause of all of it flying up at the windshield. But I made it through OK. Plus, got to see alot of cool stuff driving through Canada!

I did roughly 2500 miles in my STI in July, going from Texas to Iowa and back. About 18 hours worth of driving each way, did it straight through. Interesting that I got 27.4 MPG going to Iowa, and only 24.6 MPG coming back to Texas.

[quote]800 miles round trip to northern michigan. Not fun being the only driver + unsupportive, flat, hard seats + no sound deadening for listening to music. Atleast the roads were smooth.[quote]

Roads must be a lot nicer up north. Down in southwest MI they are terrible. They do a bunch of work cutting concrete out and putting new in, and there's huge potholes the next spring for them to fix the exact same way again.
