Im right there with you, anywhere between 100-250 miles a day for work deppending on the day. Stops at gas stations and parts stores for a filter and oil are very frequent

The FAA, I'm a technician and get somewhat regular trips to the area. I usually stop in Tulsa on my way there and back, since my sister lives there.

Wow that is a lot of driving for a day. 20 miles a day for me when I come home for lunch and a quick nap.

Webster Texas to Denver Colorado, on the way there I went via Kansas to see the state and came back through the panhandle, it was approximately 2200 miles.

My impression of Kansas: flat, windy, and boring.

Philly PA to Bozeman MT. One way is 2200 miles. Drove the entire length of I-94; longest road I've driven on from end to end. Have driven back and forth about 5 times in the jeep so far.

I drove from Wash DC area to the Outer Banks in NC. Distance isn't too far, but I had two little kids in the back of my TJ. That made it a long trip.

We have taken "Tigger" our '01 TJ Sport on several trips all out and back from our home in N.E. Wyoming. One trip to Utah, Idaho Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and back to Wyoming. Another trip trough South Dakota, North Dakota, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and back to Wyoming. We did not keep track of miles driven. These were Geocaching road trips. We also drive lots of dirt, gravel and rock roads and trails in the Black Hills.

When I first got my 98, I drove it (as a lease) from Michigan to Las Vegas to New Orleans back to Michigan. Then I realized I was out of my four years of mileage in 16 months. DOH!

We've drove around the island a couple of times. That's about 125 miles a trip.
