I just returned from one.
It was a 9-hour drive from southwest Missouri to downtown Chicago. By myself. Unless you count my two cats, who were NOT pleased and did nothing to make the trip less stressful. lol
The St.-Louis-to-Chicago portion was especially difficult. It has to be the bleakest, most boring drive anywhere. Nothing but flat cornfields and that proverbial ribbon of highway in every blinking direction as far as the eye can see. The biggest enemy is boredom. I had CDs and some junk food and some caffeine to keep me going on this trip. I finally made it home safely but it was still a major grind.
So, what's the longest distance you've ever driven in one day? How did you keep yourself alert/entertained?
