Since April, we have done a 500+ mile overnighter to SW Pennsylvania, 1200 miler to the Finger Lakes and back over Labor Day weekend (2 nights), 1100 miler to West Virginia and back for EOM (3 nights), 600 mile 2-nighter to my dad's in Louisville, 500-or-so miler to the Detroit area to visit friends... And we're looking to do more in '09!!

Our longest single day was 550 miles coming home from around Watkins Glen, NY, back to Columbus. The 550 miles took us 12 hours, but the first 300 miles took 9 hours 'since we were on all back roads.

That was at EOM in Lewisburg, WV. That trip was utterly fantastic.

Here's another one from there that I kinda like:
Thank God for the man who put the white lines on the highway.
