|Wally Meyers||When we bought ours new this year I told the salesman when we picked it up that we were going to Gatlinburg Tenn in the morning. He said Milwaukee to Gatlinburg and back isn't a good thing. We went and ran around in the mountains. Must have been a little over 1500 miles.|

|2006LJRubicon||Cincnnati OH to Key West Florida this past summer. Kept the top down the entire trip there. It was amazing. Nothing like driving across the seven mile bridge in a Jeep looking at the beautiful turqoise water, I wish I was there now. But the trip home seemed even longer.|

Strangely, going home on Friday is the shortest.

It's a variable scale.
I moved from Eugene, Oregon to Seattle in a 1960 CJ5. That's only 300-ish miles, and I've done lots of longer trips in Wranglers since then.
But a fully loaded CJ5 with duffle bags strapped to the roof, and old tired springs going its maximum 50 mph up I-5 - those 300 miles should be at least tripled.

'bout 500 miles to key west back in June where the wife and i got hitched

I work outta the house 2-3 days a week, usually. My average run is 400 miles. My long is just shy of 600. An *easy* day is 300. Yeah, I change my oil every 3 weeks. Good thing it's easy.
Last year I drove 54k miles.... on track to do 60k this year. Since the end of March, they have all been in the Jeep. With no cruise control, in all weather and all driving conditions. Wouldn't trade it for anything, though! (and it keeps the mileage off my other car!)

Longest trip in my Jeep--400 miles one way. Bout 500 on the way back but I split it over 2 days to stop and visit my brother for a night. No cruise control.
Longest trip ever mileage-wise--drove from Ohio to Kansas and back over like 4 days when I was 18. I think it was a 1500 mile trip total.
Longest trip time-wise--Ohio to Illinois for Christmas 2 years ago and an ice storm hit while I was about halfway there. Went from doing 65 on the interstate to 15-20 the rest of the way in a 2wd pickup truck. No salt on the roads due to budget cuts (occasionally we'd hit areas that had trucks dumping sand), I got on the cb and joined up in a convoy of truckers and cruised the rest of the way with them at a slow but steady and safe pace. Cars and trucks were all over the ditches and for awhile the interstate ahead of us was completely gridlocked and had to be shut down due to pile ups on the ramps. Made a 4 1/2 - 5 hr trip a 10 hr trip.

In 1980 I took my '75 CJ5 from Orange County down to Cabo and back (Tijuana to Cabo is 1,045 miles , one way), with no top. With a lot of side trips. I remember taking a dirt road into a small fly-in fishing village on the Sea of Cortez and the gringo's jaws dropped. "you guys DROVE here ???" I think they were jealous. . No top was a big mistake. When you're 20 you think you're invincible.
