Cool Longest Trip

So with the summer coming this means long road trips to random spots. SO What is the longest road trip you have taken in your bonneville. You can also add other cars too.

1086 miles Middletown NJ to Orlando Fl

Coast to coast, CT to OR and back.

About 3200-3500 miles each way.

I've visited a psychiatrist since. No more straight through non-stop trips like that for me.
