Driving distance a day

Just curious what is the max miles you drive a day, seems around three hundred is max with out being worn out the next day.

Furthest I have gone in one stretch was 1800 miles. I would not recommend that. When planning a week vacation, I try to limit it to somewhere within 900 miles. That way I can do it in one full day and maximize my time at our destination.

We like to stay about 300 or less...no reason to hurry the journey is the trip, not just the destination.

My max is 350 miles. I'll do two consecutive days of 350, but not three.

Since our 29MV is still new to us, I don't have the history with it that I did when we pulled a TT over 20,000 miles in 4 years. With the TT, 320 miles was our longest day and I was beat when we pulled into the CG. We have a 720 mile repositioning trip in a week with the 29MV, which I have divided into three days of 220 miles, 275 miles, and 225 miles. If we were in a hurry I would have tried 360 miles each day, but maybe we'll try that sometime in the future. Plus the majority of the 720 mile trip is northbound on Interstate 95, which is not one of my favorite routes.

My max was 1200 in a time crunch! Will push 900 miles without problem if needed, but 500-600 if no hurry.

I've done all nighters and cross country driving in shifts. I have come to the conclusion that I don't need to do that anymore. If I'm really making distance, 350 is fine for a couple days. As a rule we set a"limit" of 250 and really try to stay about 150. Shorter days mean a relaxed departure and arrival early enough to settle in and play tourist, perhaps even eat out. This also reduces our exposure to any rush hour traffic near cities. Unless there is a reason to hustle, why not ease up and enjoy the trip or as they say "Smell the Roses".

No hurry for me is around 350 so we can still enjoy the day.
