i go kooky in a car after about 7 or 8 hours. we have driven a beautiful route to roanoke, va. to visit relatives in the fall. that took about 7 hours. Monthly trips to killington, vt. (used to) take about 4 hours with good weather, and 7 or 8 in a snowstorm. that's not so bad when you're going up for skiing, but it sucks when it happens on the way home. i've driven from detroit to schaumberg, thru chicago and out to moline in a day. that trip was lots of suburbs, then a great city, then miles and miles of miles and miles of corn and soybeans.
and another from san diego to santa barbara in a day. that was a beautiful ride up the pch. i hear southbound from san francisco is prettier tho. that'll be our next trip out there.
