Default Longest Road trip...in YOUR Subie..

I wanted to post this cause summer is in full swing and a lot of people do road trips.

My longest was from Elkhorn, WI to Denali Park, AK for work this summer. Totaled around 3750 miles when all was said and done. I did it all solo in my 98 LGT with an ej205 swap. Only problem I had was my brake ressy went low and I had to fill it up.

The route I took was through WI, through MN into canada, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Fort Nelson, Dawson Creek, Tok, Anchorage, then Denali. Left at 5am Monday morning and got there thursday around 5pm.







most of the time I could only get 91 so I nearly excited myself when I saw this lol






snow!!!

Mine would have been from cocoa beach Fl to jacksonville NC in an 87 GL10 turbo wagon TOWING a uhaul twin axle enclosed trailer loaded to the gill.
Full boost the whole way at 45 mph...sucked, but she made the trip.

My HG blew 3 weeks later LOL.

Oh yeah, it was about 675 miles, so we'll say 1350 round trip.

Longest road trip for me... 45 minutes ha

Yeah, I don't take road trips all that often, and when I do, I'm not the one driving. It would be fun to do one though.

NYC to Key West FL in about 20 hours in a '98 Forester ~1450 miles each way... with a 14' aluminum boat on the roof.

I have a hard time being a passenger, so I did all of the driving. We only stopped for more Red Bull and bathroom breaks. I think I lost my mind somewhere around North Carolina.

Other long trips were:
NYC to Camden, Maine (900 round trip)
NYC to Kalamazoo MI via Columbus OH, and Chicago (1700 round trip)
NYC to Yulee, FL (3 times, 922 miles each way)

Put a hybrid 2.5L in with a rod knock got 7k miles on it, and then ej205 swapped it. Clock read 167k now. I drive my legacy lol.

Nothing too special...From Boston MA to western PA.

Also, not that it's too far away, but going to the New England Forest Rally typically results in 500+ miles over 2 days. Done that a handful of times.

My longest solo drive was Detroit, MI to Statham, GA by way of I-75 and US-129. 12-13 hrs, I don't recall the miles. US-129, including the Tail of the Dragon, is one hell of a wonderful, amazing road to drive! I had too much fun driving to stop and take a lot of pictures.

You make the drive for a job, school, family?

I think my next drive will be Detroit to Tucson, AZ to visit a friend. I'd fly, but there are some mountains I want to have fun on down there...unless he's willing to let me borrow his CTS-V while he's at work

My longest trip was a month ago when I flew from St. Louis airport to Myrtle Beach, SC to pick up the car. It was a 2 day trip due to it took most of the first day to get there.

The total driving trip back was 811 miles, and it was a blast to drive through western NC and Eastern TN.

A little over 1000 miles the day I first bought the car. I flew down south and then drove it on home. I fell deeply in love with my new baby on that trip back. lol

Drove home from college in Northern Cali up to Seattle last December. Usually takes 12 hours but Seattle/Tacoma had record snow fall so it took an extra 5 hours. Then to make it even worse I got stuck in the snow at top of my driveway. 17 hours of driving and I get stuck 5 feet from my house.
