    What is the quickest road trip you had to take? A few years ago I had to go from Prescott AZ. to Seaside OR. to pick up a family member. I left on a Friday night and had to be back at work on Monday for the 2nd shift job I had. This is a 1,300 mile trip one way. I drove 20 hours straight, picked him up, took a 6 hour nap and drove stright through all the way back. Stopping only, both ways, for gas and the toilet.

    When I got back, no exaggerating, the oil on the dipstick was the consistency of mud.

    I'm never doing that again.

    I made it from Detroit Michigan to Orlando Florida in 18hrs. We drove none stop, and I don't know if you ever drove from Michigan to Florida. But there is always a ton of construction and its usually bumper to bumper.

    Thank goodness I never had one of those and I don't think i'd be willing to do that in the future either. It does sound like a lot of pressure both on the body and mind. You should always have more time or another driver when taking long trips so choosing not to do that again is a wise idea.
